REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON THE VIRGINIA DARE 
MEMORIAL 

The design for the eastern gateway of the Old Fort Faleigh prop- 
erty, Roanoke Island, tentatively adopted, is still beyond the reach 
of our Special Fund. 

That fund, amounting, on 18th December, 1930, to $1,370.65 is at 
present inaccessible, since its Savings Bank and Trust Company 
of Elizabeth City, N. C, has "closed its doors." 

Our Treasurer, Mr. J. T. McCabe, is hopeful that the deposit will 
ultimately be paid in full. Respectfully submitted,

FORTY-EIGHTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 37 

1931 KEPOKT OF SPECIAL COMMITTEE 

Mr. George B. Elliott, for the Special Committee, made 
a report and the following resolutions were adopted : 

Whereas, the Budget of Appropriations of $46,248.00 for the Gen- 
eral and Diocesan work, to be derived from parishes and missions, 
exceeds the amount to be reasonably expected from that source 
by the sum of $5,000.00, or 10%: 

BE IT RESOLVED: 

1. That the Woman's Auxiliary be asked to assume the leader- 
ship in raising the balance of the amount accepted by the Diocese 
for the Advance Work Program amounting to $2,300.00, it being 
understood that they shall have access to all the people of the Dio- 
cese in their effort to meet this responsibility: 

2. That special emphasis be placed this Lent upon the obliga- 
tion of the people for General Missions, and that the self-denial of- 
ferings of the people during Lent through the Mite Boxes of the 
Church Schools or through the Easter offerings be devoted wholly, 
wherever possible, or in part to paying the apportionment of $13,- 
000.00 to the General Church; 

3. That a special committee be appointed by the Bishop which 
either themselves, or through their agents, shall solicit special gifts 
fiom a list of persons whose names shall be obtained from their 
Rectors or otherwise, such persons being those who seem best 
able to respond to such an appeal; this appeal to be made between 
now and July 1st, in the interest of raising the sum of $5,000.00 nec- 
essary to prevent a reduction of our budget for the year by that 
amount: 

4. That failing to secure such an amount through the Lent and 
Taster offerings and special gifts by the first of July next, the 
Executive Council be authorized and directed to reduce the present 
budget of $46,248.00 by an amount equal to the difference between 
the budget and the amount reasonably to be expected from Parishes 
and Missions, plus the amount received from the sources above 
mentioned. ( 

A report for the Commission on Evangelism was made by 

Rev. W. H. Milton, D.D., and the following resolution was 

adopted : 

"Resolved, That the Convention approves the plans for a Dio- 
cesan-Wide Mission outlined by the Chairman of the Commission 
on Evangelism, and that the members of the Convention, both

clerical and lay, pledge themselves, both officially and personally, 
to full support of the Mission and to sacrificial endeavor in every 
way to insure the success of the Mission." 

Mk W. F. Pelham, of Chicago, spoke on the work of the 
Brotherhood of St. Andrew. 

On mjotion of MJr. John G. Bragaw, Mr. Pelham was given 
a rising vote of thanks for the fine contribution that he had 
made both to the work of the Brotherhood and Convention. 

Mr. "WL G. Gaither presented the following : 

It is little comfort to be charged with the responsibility of the 
affairs of the Diocese of East Carolina, to know that financial con- 
ditions in all sections of the country are much the same as we find 
tbem here. The obligations of our Diocese are more or less fixed: 
but that, unfortunately, isn't true of our income. This fact is im- 
pressed more forcibly upon us with each recurring depression in 
business and agriculture. Since it is apparently impossible to put 
an end to these periods of depression isn't it the part of wisdom to 
meet the situation by establishing our income on such a basis that 
om' obligations can be met and our work carried on? 

What I have to say to you today, will in no way relieve the im- 
mediate situation. However, it is brought to your attention at this 
time with the approval and at the request of the Bishop and Execu- 
tive Council in the hope that, as time goes on and conditions once 
more become normal, the proposed plan may develop in such a way 
as to enable our Diocese to maintain its splendid standing among 
the dioceses of the National Church, and to relieve our Bishop of 
the worry and strain of diocesan finances, that he may be free to 
devote his great mind and energies, in larger measure, to the spirit- 
ual development of the diocese, with sufficient financial support to 
carry out those practical plans which his long experience causes 
him to feel are necessary. To accomplish this it is suggested that 
we were here and now take steps looking to an endowment for our 
Diocese. You doubtless know that the National Church is working 
on a plan of this kind at the present time and you are, of course, 
familiar with the great benefits to mankind accomplished through 
the endowment funds of some of our country's outstanding Uni- 
versities and Hospitals. 

The plan is that we authorize the organization of "The Episcopal 
Foundation of the Diocese of East Carolina" (or let it be called by 
sucb other more appropriate name that may be decided upon) to 



FORTY-EIGHTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 39- 



1934 REPORT OF MR. W. G. GAITHER 

be administered by a Board of Trustees of five members including, 
the Bishop; the charter to clothe the Trustees with broad powers 
and to provide for an organization as hereinafter set out. 

The purpose of the Foundation is "to provide a Fund the income 
from which would be used for the development of the religious,, 
educational and charitable work of the Protestant Episcopal Church 
in the Diocese of East Carolina." And, among other things, it would 
fce empowered 

1 To render financial assistance to worthy young men desirous 
of entering the ministry; 

2. To render financial assistance to capable young women de- 
siring to prepare for religious work, either at home or abroad. 

3. To supplement the salary of the clergy in certain cases, until 
the local church or mission is self-supporting; 

4. To take care of such cases of charity throughout the Diocese 
which cannot be provided for locally; 

5. And for such other religious, educational or charitable pur- 
poses as the Trustees may deem proper. 

Possibly at this time I should tell you that this is not an 
appeal to you for funds, but rather it provides a means whereby 
anyone so inclined may either now or at some future time con- 
tribute money or securities for the permanent use and benefit of the 
Church with the assurance that any such contribution will be wisely 
and economically administered. 

The Foundation would, of course, start with no funds; but the 
power of suggestion is remarkable and if given a reasonable amount 
of publicity through the Mission Herald and possibly from the pulpit 
from time to time, it is felt that a good start could be made by the 
time this body convenes next year; and it would seem altogether 
possible to look forward to having a fund of such proportions in 
five years as to yield substantial income, which income should then 
be a vital force in accomplishing those things for which the endow- 
ment was created. 

It is believed that as the plan is developed we would find that a 
great many of our members, both men and women, would provide 
substantially for the Foundation in their wills, which they had not 
felt inclined to do during their life time; also that a large number 
of interested churchmen, feeling unable to make a cash contribu- 
tion, would purchase an additional insurance policy for $1,000.00 
(or possibly in some cases for as much as $10,000.00} , keeping up 
the premiums during life and depositing the policy with the Foun- 
dation, the funds to become available upon the death of the donor. 

No doubt many other plans for building up the funds of the- 
Foundation would occur to the Board of Trustees, who would al- 



40 DIOCESE OE EAST CAROLINA 

eepoet of me. w. g. gaither January, 

ways be glad to have suggestions looking to this end from inter- 
ested churchmen. 

The organization of the Foundation is a relatively simple matter. 
A charter would, of course, have to be obtained but this could be 
done either by the Executive Council or by a special organization 
committee to be appointed. It is suggested that the charter provide 
that the Bishop of the Diocese should always be one of the Trustees 
and that the other four members of the Board of Trustees be ap- 
pointed from among the laymen of the Diocese by the Executive 
Council, which body would fix the term of office of such Trustees, 
providing that one member serve for three years, one for four 
:,ears, and the other two for a period of five years. The charter 
should doubtless also provide that any Trustee could be reappointed 
to succeed himself upon the expiration of his term of office, and 
that any vacancy in the Board of Trustees be filled by the Execu- 
tive Council. 

The Board of Trustees should be given power to invest and re- 
invest the funds of the Foundation, within certain restrictions, and 
should be required to make a full and complete report of its opera- 
tions at each Annual Convention. It is suggested that the Execu- 
tive Secretary of the Diocese serve as Secretary to the Board of 
Trustees. 

I have stated to you briefly— and I hope clearly— what has been 
in the minds and hearts of some of us for several years and I trust 
it will receive favorable consideration at your hands. If some such 
plan as this could have been put into effect in years gone by, pos- 
sibly our troubles of today would be of smaller proportions. 

Personally, I am very much in earnest about this endowment and 
have great confidence that it will operate successfully. While I 
should like to see it given a trial, I trust none of you will vote for 
the proposal unless you are willing to get behind it and help make 
it a success. To co-operate it is not necessary to burden yourself 
In order to make a large contribution at this time; but to be suc- 
cessful the plan must have publicity and you can certainly see that 
your friends and neighbors are fully informed regarding it, arrang- 
ing your own contribution at such time as you find it most con- 
venient. 

Some among you might feel that it is no time to start something 
new when our individual burdens are so great, but I would say in 
that connection that it costs nothing to make the start and the 
adoption of this plan cannot nossibly increase the financial burden 
■of any "of us unless voluntarily done. On the other hand. I am con- 
vinced that everv churchman at some time or other during the 
course of his lifetime experiences a sincere desire to do something 



FORTY-EIGHTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 41 

1931 BEPOBT OF COMMITTEE ON INSURANCE 

real and definite for religious advancement. It occurs to me that 
this plan offers at least one splendid opportunity to those who might 
Lave such a desire. I believe if the Foundation is organized and 
vigorously followed up, that its development and accomplishments 
will be gratifying to all of us. Are you willing to give it a trial? 

Mjr. George B. Elliott then offered the following resolutions 
which were adopted: 

"Resolved, That the report of Mr. Gaither be accepted with 
thanks of this Convention. 

Resolved, further, That said report be and it is hereby approved 
by this Convention and the formation of such a Foundation be and 
it is hereby authorized. 

Resolved further, That said report be referred to the Executive 
Council with instructions to take action, in the name of this Con- 
vention, necessary to secure the incorporation of said Foundation, 
substantially in accord with said report." 

Mr. E. R. Conger invited the Convention to meet in St. 
Paul's Church, Edenton, in 1931, and on motion of Rev. I. 
deL. Brayshaw, the invitation was accepted. 

Rev. W. W. Way, D.D., spoke on St. Mary's School. 

Mr. Richard L. Meares read the report of the Committee 
on Insurance, as follows : 

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON INSURANCE. 

Your Committee on Insurance respectfully submits their report 
as follows: 

"We have added during the past year to the Schedule policy sev- 
eral items of additional insurance, and at this time the total amount 
of insurance carried on account of the Schedule policy for the Dio- 
cese is $89,750.00, covering on items as per attached list. 

From January 1, 1930, to December 31, 1930, we collected a total 
of $51.00 on account of the Schedule insurance, which amount is 
•made up from the following items: 

Jan. 28— Calvary, Warsaw $10 . 00 

Feb. 3— All Saints', Fairfield 12.00 

Apr. 23— St. Clements, Beaufort 5.00 

Nov. 26 — St. Andrew's, Nag's Head 0-00 

Dec. 4 — Parish House, Hope Mills 12.00 

Dec. 5— St. Luke's, Winterville 6.00 



42 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

bepobt of committee on insubance January,. 

During the year 1930 we saved the Diocese considerable money 
by cancelling the insurance on buildings at Camp Leach, and adding 
it to the Schedule policy. This saving was due to the fact that the 
addition of this amount of insurance did not make any change in 
the average rate at which the Schedule policy is written. 

We regret that financial conditions in the Diocese have been such 
during the past year that we were not able to make collection from 
more parishes and missions. We do hope though that conditions 
in 1931 will be such that we will be able to collect a large part of 
the back items, as well as the current items, covering the renewal 
of the insurance. 

Your Insurance Committee is subject to call from any church at 
any time. When the insurance on your property is solicited and 
special inducements are offered you, we recommend that such prop- 
osition be submitted to your Committee. Your Committee can, in 
all probability, working in harmony with regular insurance agents, 
work out plans which will be just as favorable if not more so than 
any which may be submitted from outside influences. Your Com- 
mittee earnestly desires to render to the very best of their ability 
a real service to each church and the Committee sincerely hope 
that they will be called upon. 

Your Committee desires to caution each parish and mission to 
exert the utmost care in seeing that their insurance does not lapse, 
because in times of depression the protection is needed far more 
than at any other time. Respectfully submitted,

EEPOET OF COMMITTEE ON STATE OF THE CHURCH January, 

The offering was received for the Bishop's Fund. 

The Convention re-assembled for business at 10:00 A.M., 
the Bishop in the Chair. 

Mr. George C. Royall read Report ISTo. 1 of the Finance 
Department, which was adopted as follows : 

"Your Department of Finance beg leave to report that we have 
examined the Treasurer's report together with report of the audi- 
tors and find same correct." 

The Rev. Walter R. ]SToe was re-elected Treasurer of the 
Diocese. 

The Rev. Stephen Gardner read the report of the Commit- 
tee on the State of the Church, as follows : 

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON THE STATE OF THE CHURCH 
FOR THE YEAR ENDING DECEMBER 31, 1930. 

Your Committee is unable to make an accurate report on the 
State of the Church for the year just past, for the simple reason 
that, on the opening day of the Convention sixteen parishes and 
missions of the Diocese had failed to send to the Secretary the 
l'aiochial reports asked for by Januaiyy 15rb. Now that the Con- 
vention of the Diocese is meeting in the month of January instead 
of May, your Committee feels that an added effort should be made 
by every parish and mission in the Diocese to send theoe reports 
to the Secretary by January 15th of each year. 

In order to determine progress made during the year we discov 
ered from the Reports of the General Church, out of 27 Dioceses 
with communicants numbering from six to eight thousand, and with 
clergy numbering from 25 to 40, East Carolina stood at the top. 
Only two of these 27 Dioceses had as many confirmations as East 
Carolina had during the year 1930, and in both cases the nameiical 
strength of these Dioceses exceeded that of East Carolina. It is 
also interesting to note that in both cases the contributions were 
more than $70,000.00 less than the contributions of the people of the 
Diocese of East Carolina. 

Another interesting fact is that while the total number of con- 
firmation in the General Church for the past two years has been 
about 3% of the total number of communicants, the number of con- 
firmations in the Diocese of East Carolina has been more than 5 
per cent of the total number of communicants reported by the 
parishes and missions of the Diocese.

lieve that if each parish and mission carries out the full program 
of the Church as adopted by the Convention, especially the recom- 
mendations from the Executive Council and the Commission on 
Evangelism, East Carolina can look forward to 1931 with the assur- 
ance of greater progress in the service of God and in the Kingdom 
o? His Christ. We see signs of this progress in the attendance of' 
the laymen of the Diocese at this Convention. In the words of our 
Bishop, "For this we thank God and take courage." 
Respectfully submitted, 

STEPHEN GARDNER, Chairman." 

Rev. R. I. Johnson, read the report on the proposed Good 
Shepherd Hospital at New Bern, as follows : 

REPORT ON GOOD SHEPHERD HOSPITAL AND TRAINING 

SCHOOL. 

Rt. Rev. Bishop and Gentlemen of the Convention: 

I respectfully submit to you today my first report on the move- 
ment to build the hospital for colored people in the Diocese of East 
Carolina. 

At the last meeting of the Convention Bishop Darst appointed 
the following persons "as a Steering Committee: Rev. G. H. Madara, 
Rev. Stephen Gardner, Mr. E. K. Bishop, Mr. George C. Royall, Dr. 
D. E. Ford, Dr. Thomas M. Green, Dr. Ira M. Hardy, Mr. Wm. Dunn, 
Mrs. R. N. Duffy, Mrs. John D. Whitford, Mrs. C. E. Rhone, Prof. J. 
T. Barber, Mr. I. H. Smith, and Rev. R. I. Johnson. To these were 
added later Drs. H. W. Fisher and. William Mann. 

Upon the call of Mr. Bishop, who acted as temporary Chairman, 
the Committee met in New Bern on June 10th, 1930, and was or- 
ganized as follows: Rev. G. H. Madara, Chairman, Mr. E. K. Bishop, 
Vice-Chairman, Rev. R. I. Johnson, Secretary, and Rev. W. R. Noe, 
Treasurer. 

Committees were appointed on Site, Building, Finance, Incorpo- 
ration and Name. Mrs. John D. Whitford, Chairman on Site; Dr. Ira 
M. Hardy, on Building; Mrs. R. N. Duffy, on Finance; Mr. William 
Dunn on Incorporation, and Rev. G. H. Madara on Name. 

The name finally chosen was "Good Shepherd Hospital and Train- 
ing School." 

After another meeting on June 19th, no other meetings have 
been held. 

In the meanwhile developments have been — first, a change in the-

policy of the Duke Endowment which will not permit them to con- 
tribute more than 40% of the cost of building and equipment. This 
means $60,000 instead of $75,000 from that source, giving us an ad- 
ditional $15,000 to raise. The Secretary has been exploring some 
possibilties to cover this and believes the assistance of a few influ- 
ential friends will carry it through. Some progress has been made 
also in getting a donation towards the first years expenses to tide 
us over while we are studying the institution and its environment 
in the interests of its maintenance. In this too, we shall greatly 
need the assistance of influential East Carolina Churchmen. A 
second development has been the termination of the chairmanship 
of the Rev. Mr. Madara by his removal to New York state. It is 
hoped that an early meeting of the Committee may be had for the 
purpose of selecting his successor. 

A third development has been the campaign for the Advance 
Work Program in the Diocese of Pennsylvania to raise along with 
money for other projects $25,000 for our hospital. In this campaign, 
which will be concluded on Quinquagesima Sunday, I have deliver- 
ed 28 addresses and have come home with the warmest assurances 
that Pennsylvania will not fail us and Avith the most glowing com- 
mendations for the Diocese of East Carolina in its promotion of a 
so greatly needed agency of Christian service to its vast population 
of 300,000 Negroes. 

, The Rosenwald donation of $35,000 stands with perhaps the 
necessity of a renewal owing to the financial conditions through 
which we are passing and which make it difficult to hope that any 
considerable amount of money can be raised in the Diocese at this 
time. In the face of these conditions which create a crisis for this 
movement as they do for the whole life of the Diocese and of the 
State we plead for the counsel and guidance of those whose wis- 
dom may enable us to overcome the difficulties which now con- 
front us. 

There are few things the Church can do today that will do more 
to win the affection and the gratitude of the great number of this 
race in East Carolina than the building of this agency of mercy 
which will not only heal their sick but through its nurses and clinics 
will spread the knowledge of cleanliness and healthy living among 
the masses to the great benefit of all white and colored. Those 
of us who have worked long years for the Church are anxious to 
see her receive the love and allegiance of this group. To this she 
is entitled as the first religious body to minister to our people in 
this Country, the first religious body in America to admit a colored 
man to Holy Orders. Her approaches to them through the activities 
of the Venerable Society for the Propagation of the Gospel In co-

lonial days, through the older ante-bellum parishes, and since the 
War are a standing witness of her solicitude for their so'uls. This 
tradition has found ample continuance in East Carolina, where 
Bishops, white Priests and people have given generously of atten- 
tion and means to sustain it. 

Today alien forces are abroad in the land and in this Diocese con- 
tending with the Church and her protestant associates for a follow- 
ing among this race; and we distinctly recall that it was these 
which the late Col. Meares had in mind when he stated that if we 
are going to do this work among the colored people we should go 
about it with the greatest earnestness and determination. 

Today, this race is losing its proverbial religiousness as the 
younger generation becomes disgusted with officialism, ecclesiasti- 
cal domination and misgovernment. Of the 45% who are supposed 
to belong to Churches large numbers are falling away. Denomi- 
national evangelism is at a standstill; and these people who want 
religion and can't find what they want are apparently blissfully 
ignorant of the existence of the Church, her way of life and heal- 
ing messages and fellowship. Ours is a great opportunity to enfold 
them before they lapse into something worse than religious indiff- 
erence. 

Those of us who live among them and know their needs see in 
the Hospital as it stands in our midst not only a witness of the 
sympathy and power of the Church but also a challenge to the 
colored race to behold their friends. 

Mr. George C. Roy all read Report No. 2 of the Finance 
Department, which was adopted, as follows : 

"Resolved, That the Treasurer of the Diocese be authorized to 
pay the expenses to the Convention of the clergymen, not yet con- 
nected with the Diocese who are now located and serving therein, 
and of such clergymen as may have been prevented from being 
present at the opening of the Convention and also expenses of Can- 
didates for Holy Orders and Postulants who are not serving in the 
Diocese. 

Resalved further, That the Treasurer be instructed to pay the 
Sexton of St. Paul's $5.00 for services during the Convention."

BISHOP'S ADDRESS--! 931 



BISHOP'S ADDRESS. 



Brethren of the Clergy and Laity of the Diocese of East Caro- 
lina: 

"Grace be unto you, and peace from God, Our Father, and 
from the Lord Jesus Christ." 

We are meeting today in a time of unrest, confusion and 
fear, and I pray that God, the Holy, Ghost, may so guide us 
in our deliberations and inspire us with His wisdom that we 
may be enabled to carry back to our people a message so com- 
pelling in its courage, and so unfaltering in its faith, that the 
whole Diocese may respond with renewed consecration to the 
call of Christ and His Church. 

As we look back over the past year, we find many reasons 
for real encouragement. The Confirmations have been larger 
than for many years ; the Clergy generally have never served 
more faithfully; and the Laity, in many instances, have dis- 
played real sacrificial devotion in their loyalty to the Church 
and its Program. 

Our people generally have suffered materially; many of 
them have felt the pinch of genuine poverty, and have had to 
make real sacrifices, involving the disruption of cherished 
plans for themselves and for their children. 

And yet, in spite of this wide spread condition, yes, per- 
haps because of this condition, I have seen a deepening of 
the spiritual life of this people such as I have not seen before 
during the sixteen years in which I have been permitted to 
serve you. 

We have seen the crashing of financial institutions in 
which we trusted. We have heard the tramp of thousands 
of our unemployed brothers seeking a chance to live. We 
have seen the toil of the farmer come to naught, and we have 



56 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 



bishop's address January, 



sensed the deep silence of our closed factories and mills. We 
have had to face stark realities, and some of us, I believe, 
have made a fresh discovery of God. 

It has been a time to try men's souls, and I believe we have 
needed such a time, a testing timu, when men, shaken from 
false security and transient content, fall back upon God and 
find peace. 

The easy days, so sadly abused, so wantonly squandered, 
are gone, and the very salvation of America may depend upon 
the length of time they remain away. 

The hard days are here — the days of planning and thinking 
and giving up, the days of readjustment of living and resto- 
ration of values and discovery of self. These days are here — 
may We have the courage to thank God for them; may we 
have the wisdom to use them, not as valleys of depression 
through which we toil in bitterness and defeat, but as God's 
own highways over which we march in confidence and faith 
to that larger life of service, that wider field of usefulness 
that we could have never known if we had not learned the 
lesson of the hard high road. 

At such a time as this, we should pause and take stock of 
our resources. We should ask ourselves : Have I been living 
in a fool's paradise ? Have I been depending upon tempo- 
rary, transient resources ? Have I anything left upon which 
t'"> build my life ? 

Such an examination, honestly made, should lead us to a 
realization of the truth that we have lost nothing that is 
permanent, nothing that makes for character, nothing that 
could possibly endure for one moment after the breath leaves 
our body; and that we still have the possibility of possessing 
ali things that make for the splendor of our manhood and the 
winning of our souls. 

We still have God. We have our Master, Christ. We have 
membership in His body the Church. We have our task, and 



FORTY-EIGHTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 57 

1931 bishop's addeess 

we have the certainty of victory, through faith. 

In a recent issue of a financial pamphlet, I read these 
words : "These times test men's courage, and they test faith 
more than courage." 

There is such a thing as being fool-hardy and calling 
i t courage ; but experience shows that our peril is the lack of 
faith. 

It would seem as though some social leaders have no faith 
in America, and some Church leaders have no faith in God. A 
defeatist attitude dominates most enterprises for the well- 
being of society and the advancement of the Kingdom of God. 
We are in retreat. The challenge of the sacrificial has been 
lost in coping with emergencies. 

Reductions, Curtailments, Cuts, Discarded Programs, 
Abandoned fields, Surrender, Retreat- These are the prevail' 
ing attitudes, Faith has crumpled. Men charged with 
great programs are panic stricken. They have lost their 
nerve. 

Courage, Love, Spiritual Passion, Sacrifice, Religious, fer- 
vor, Service, Generosity. The sense of immediacy, the sense 
of opportunity, Faith. These are the qualifications for a 
time like this." 

God send us faith. God send us courage to thank Him for 
permitting us to live and labor in such a time as this. 

At such a time as this, we take notice of our foundations, 
we; dwell on the glory of our heritage ; our minds swing back 
to the beginnings of this mighty organism, of which We are 
living members, the Church of the Living God. 

We see a little band of men and women gathered in an 
upper room in Jerusalem. We wait with them as they wait 
for the Promised Power. We see them going out from that 
little corner of the world in response to the marching orders 
of their Master. We see them go without material equip- 
ment, without influence or earthly power. We see them in 



58 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

bishop's address January, 

complete and glad surrender to the will of God, in absolute 
loyalty to Christ, in utter self-forgetfulness, going forth 
against kingdoms of selfishness and lust and greed and sin, 
and we see them winning those kingdoms and transforming 
them into the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ. 

We speak of our sufferings, our little self-denials, our 
inability to maintain our luxuries. God pity us for our petti- 
ness. They thanked God that they were permitted to suffer 
for His sake, and even in awful flame of martyrdom they 
lifted their radiant faces to the throne of God and cried out 
their triumphant death song — "Thy Kingdom come, Thy 
will be done on earth." 

At such a time as this, God is leading His Church back to 
ike meaning of the Cross, so that it may learn again the 
glory of its mission ; so that from the lesson of that Cross, it 
ittpy march forward with fresh faith and passionate devo- 
tion to join forces with that lonely leader, Christ, wiho has 
been waiting so long for us to come. 

At such a time as this we must take stock of our environ- 
ment and make a survey of the conditions of our day. It does 
not require the skill of a keen student of human affairs to 
realize that conditions in our world are far from normal. 
Unrest and rebellion characterize a large section of the 
world; hate and fear permeate human society. China has 
her revolutions, Russia and her radical experiments are no 
longer distant disturbing movements to which we give casual, 
curious attention from time to time. Industrial revolution 
lifts is head in our own State and Nation, and radical influ- 
ences find their way more and more into the very life of our 
working people. In a recent article written by my friend, 
Joseph Fort Newton, he said : 

"As the Russian repudiation of religion may help to renew 
our faith, so the up-rooting of humanity in economic and so- 
cial affairs may force us to put our own house in order. It is 



FORTY-EIGHTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 59 

1931 bishop's addbess 

not simply a polemic, but a portent, and if it looks at first 
like the idealism of hell, to ignore it is folly. 

It does turn the search light on features of our own eco- 
nomic system which are ghastly in their injustice and brutal 
in their exploitation of m(an by man. It shows, as in a horri- 
ble apocalypse, that our selfish, individualistic commercialism, 
so ready to use men to make money for private gain and lux- 
urious display, instead of using money to make men, is noth- 
ing but organized atheism. It is not only unchristian, it is 
inhuman. 

Surely, we now know that no society has any secure future 
but that in which the people, all together, learn to co-operate 
as part of a common life for the common good. Our hope 
lies in a practical fraternal righteousness', in which the skill 
of science is employed to serve the masses of mankind. In 
short, our religion must first do justly, then love mercy, if it 
i- to lead men to walk humbly with God." 

We must realize that our house is not in order. With far 
more than half of the people in this great nation outside of 
any form of organized religion, with half of the people of 
this state owing no allegiance to any branch of God's Church, 
with an increasing disregard of law on the part of respectable 
citizens, with the appalling increase of crime among youth, 
with the breaking down of the standard of decency in human 
relations, we must know that our house is not in order, and 
that the Kingdom of God on earth is still an illusive hope. 

In our own Diocese, we see the need for a more compelling 
faith and a finer measure of sacrificial devotion on the part 
of our people. We have held our own. We have pushed for* 
ward the boundaries of the Kingdom a little bit here and 
there, but we must admit, in shame and humility, that we 
have failed to win any great objectives for Christ and His 
Church. *From the ignorant and the sinning, from the for- 
gotten and the neglected, from the tenant farmer and the pale

children of the mill village, the call is coming for our leader- 
ship, our loving sympathy, our Christ-like devotion to those 
for whom He died. 

"He loved me, and He gave Himself for me" cried St. Paul 
out of the fulness of his grateful heart as, in absolute surren- 
der, he gave himself to the mighty work to which he had been 
divinely called. The same blessed assurance should send us 
out to-day, determined, at whatever cost, to play our full, 
joyful part in carrying that blessed message to the heart of 
a weary, waiting world. 

In the days of our prosperity, we gave, without joy and 
without sacrifice, to the support of the Church and the spread 
of the Kingdom of Christ, and because so many of us gave 
without this sense of privilege, the act was not sacramental, 
and, therefore, easily abandoned when prosperity ceased. Be- 
cause our meat was not to do the will of God, we were hun- 
gry, even in our prosperity and miserable in our poverty. 

Admitting our failures, we will not admit defeat; Conscious 
of our poverty of soul, we will not refuse to be fed ; unworthy 
of our Sonship, we will not give up our heritage. We will, 
please God, go on from this place with courage and with faith 
accomplish the work committed to our hands. We will clear 
from our souls those barriers that have blocked the way of 
Jesus. We will offer and present ourselves to His service. 
Out of our plenty, we have given with indifference ; out of our 
poverty, we will offer with joy. 

We will face the problems of our day with understanding 
hearts, and give to a perplexed and distressed people that 
leadership which will enable them to find God, and in finding 
Him, to find peace. 

Surely we can say with a measure of confidence and joy 
that we have come to the Kingdom for such a time as this, 
a time of danger and opporunity and high privilege, a time 
for the testing of souls. It is no time for superficialties, no 
time for surface contacts, but it is a time when Clergy and 



FORTY-EIGHTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 61 

1931 bishop's address 

Laity alike must so deepen their faith and renew their cour- 
age that they may be enabled to show men and women that 
the only way out is the way of the Cross. It is not the easy 
way, but it is the only way; it is not the way the weakling 
would choose, but it is the way to victory. 

"Whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world, and this 
is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith." 

God give us faith to overcome our fears, our prejudices, and 
our sins. God give us faith to see and understand His plans. 
God give us faith to know and appreciate the power that be- 
longs to His sons. God give us a vision of the world's need 
and a passion for the souls of men, for 

"The great world's heart is aching,aching fiercely in the night 
And God alone can heal it, and God alone give light ; 
And the men to bear that message, and to speak the living 

word, 
Are you and I,my brothers, and the millions that have heard. 

Can we close our eyes to duty ? Can we fold our hands at ease 
"While the gates of night stand open to the pathways of the 

seas? 
Can we shut up our compassions ? Can we leave our prayer 

unsaid, 
Till the lands which Hell has blasted have quickened from 

the dead ? 

We grovel among trifles and our spirits fret and toss, 
While above us burns the vision of the Christ upon the Cross ; 
And the blood of God is streaming from His broken hands 

and side, 
And the lips of God are saying "Tell my brothers I have 

died." 
O Voice of God, we hear Thee above the shocks of time 
Thine echoes roll around us, and the message is sublime ; 
No power of man shall thwart us,no stronghold shall dismay, 
When God commands obedience and love has led the way."

Appendix "C 



REPORT OF THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY TO THE CONVEN 
TION OF 1931 



Right Reverend Father in God: , 

The Woman's Auxiliary respectfully report their work for 1930 
to you and to the Diocesan Convention. Instead of having it take 
the form of a condensed report written by the President, I wish it 
could be the full and complete reports of the two Convocational 
Presidents, just as they were prepared for the Auxiliary Convention. 
Tbey are the reports that tell of the fine spirit and loving service 
which is evident in many places in spite of discouragement, trouble 
and loss. This year shows a steady deepening of responsibility to 
the Auxiliary work and a more comprehensive knowledge of the 
program of the whole Church. In almost every place where the 
work has been allowed to follow prescribed lines of the five fields 
of Service the work has developed and missionary vision has in- 
creased. 

The Auxiliary organization has not been used to the fullest in 
many of the parishes. In the annual report of the Provincial 
Auxiliary, you will find the following: "The Auxiliary no longer 
thinks of ourselves as a separate group banded together to carry 
out our own separate program; today we see ourselves as a vital 
force in the life of the Church with no program but the program of 
the Church; a group committed individually and collectively to the 
furthering of every phase of the Church Mission, in our homes, in 
our parishes, m our communities, in our Dioceses, in the nation and 
in the world. There are seventy-nine societies, sixty-five of which 
are Auxiliaries, which now report to our Diocesan organization. It 
is a force which could be called on more by the Priests and ves- 
tries, not only to help with the responsibility of teaching every 
member of the Church about the Advance Work program but with 
the responsibility of seeing that the parish quotas are paid. In 
some cases the women are kept informed, in others they are told 
some of the facts without being given opportunities for service. 
Among themselves, the women have paid $700.00 on the Advance 
Work which is to be finished by the General Convention. The 
work which you asked us to do has been completed. The amount 
was $2,600.00. The Bishop's Fund was $770.79. The United Thank 
Offering was $3,276.68. We have been unfortunate in losing some 
of this last amount in Bank failures but we hope to recover some

of it. The Supply Department sent boxes to various missions, 
valued at $2,529.74, of which boxes valued at $1,100.76 went to the 
Thompson Orphanage. This year all except two children from East 
Carolina have been clothed by our societies and two Individuals in 
the Diocese. 

The regular work divided into the five fields is as follows: 

Parish $ 6,743 . 47 

Community 2,215 . 61 

Diocese 3,913 . 71 

Nation 223..30 

World 788 . 00 

Total $13,884 . 09 

with the U. T. O. and Supply Work making $19,690.51. The amount 
contributed to the Student Work in Greenville was $239.39; to Gali- 
lee Mission, Lai-~ Phelps $38.10. We have $"66.50 to begin the fund 
for the Negro Hospital. Aside from our regular scholarships, help 
has been sent to Miss Mae Bonner and Miss Maud Cutler, both of 
whom are training for the Mission field. This has amounted to 
$198.00. Th^re have been a variety of other gifts made but these 
seem most important. 

New societies have been started in six places: Elizabethtown, 
Red Springs — Maxton, Ahoskie, Wilmington, Section- B, Christ 
Chapel, Camden and Fairfield. The Auxiliary has been very much 
interested in the college work in the Diocese and are glad to be 
able to visit the Student Center at this time. One sign of growth 
is that meetings are being generally held during the summer now. 
Some of the large parishes met during the summer of 1930 that had 
never tried it before. Some of these meetings are being held in 
trie homes of rural members. Their programs are varied. 

The educational report is encouraging. Miss Winslow says that 
more reports were sent in, the prospects look brighter and that a 
greater variety of subjects were studied besides the ones that were 
recommended. Many of the Church papers were used and the pro 
gram of the Church studied through them. Subscriptions to the 
Spirit of Missions have grown. The program meetings have becor^ r 
popular. The Diocesan officers have traveled more and been used 
more than ever for special speakers. There are still comparatively 
few people who attend the summer conferences from East Caro- 
lina, nothing like the number which go from the other Dioceses in 
the Carolinas. It is hoped that as many as possible will send a 
delegate from their parish next summer. One scholarship was 
given by the Auxiliary to Camp Leach. 



100 DIOCESE OE EAST CAKOLINA 



report of woman's auxiliary January 



With a year of strain and trouble, increasing opportunities have 
come to the Auxiliary for Christian Social Service. The word which 
expresses Mrs. Outland's reports best is "beautiful". They also 
show that the development along this line has been for four years, 
steady, intelligent, fine and spiritual. We now have forty-seven 
active Committees which we have reports from, large parishes and 
tiny missions, all of whose members are thoroughly interested. 
The rural committee, working under this department has been 
active reporting ten auxiliaries with rural chairmen. Forty fami- 
lies have been found in need of church influence. Eight organiza- 
tions are instrumental in bringing people to religious services. The 
Chairman of Ihis Rural Committee held a fine conference at Camp 
Leach in September. 

Our Field Chairman has endeavoured to keep spiritual emphasis 
on our work, through the u s e of inspirational material and letters, 
through promoting Quiet Days and Hours, by helping with programs 
foi such services. There have been more corporate Communions 
by the individual societies. Special efforts and pians were made 
and carried out to celebrate the Nineteen Hundredth Anniversary 
of the Day of Pentecost. 

We hope in the year ahead of us to lay greater stress on enlisting 
and equipping young women for service, cot only in the Mission field 
but in the work of the Church at home. . We will ask your prayers 
particularly for this effort. The World Wide Day of Prayer for 
Missions will be celebrated in February and at this time we would 
like special intercession for this object. 

The Auxiliary has used the Mission Herald through our Publicity 
Chairman for keeping the women of the Diocese informed of their 
work and plans. These articles are used often at their meetings 
foe keeping in touch with the Diocesan work. 

We have lost two officers during the year. Mrs. S. M. Boat- 
wright, who was Secretary and Mrs. J. P. Watters as Church Period- 
ical. Club Director. Miss Mary Lucas Cantwell ana Miss Jessie 
Peace have filled these vacancies. Our Supply Secretary, Miss 
Elizabeth Griffin, leaves us next month to go to the mission field 
in the Philippines. 

The two Couvocational meetings were well attended and East 
Carolina was represented at the Synod in Jackson, Miss. 

I would like to close this report with the thought in your minds 
that we are Auxiliary to you in your program and plans and that 
we desire to be u s ed to the utmost in establishment of Christ's 
Kingdom. Respectfully submitted, 

JANIE WILLIAMS MacMILLAN, 
President.

APPENDIX "F" 



REPORTS FROM CLERGY. 

REV. R. B. DRANE, D.D., for St. Andrew's-by-the-Sea, Nag's Head. 

In addition to the land on which the Chapel stands, the Nag's 
Head Mission owns another, vacant lot on the ocean side. Title to 
the property is in the Trustees of the Diocese. The value is in- 
creasing. 

The Rev. Frederick Blount Drane ministered frequently during 
his stay. 



REV. E. deF. HEALD, Non-Parochial, Hickory, N. C. 

I have the honor to report that I am serving the Parish of St. 
Luke's, Lincolnton, N. C. (Diocese of Western N. C.) as locum 
tenens— as for the past sixteen months; and am always at the 
Church's call for special or emergency services during the week. 
My academic work continues to be at Lenoir Rhyne College, here. 



REV. J. W. HERRITAGE, D.D., for St. Joseph's, Fayetteville. 

In addition to my Parochial duties at St. Joseph's, I have made 
eight visits and held services at the Sanitarium in Hoke County. 
Administered Holy Communion four times. 



REV. G. W. LAY, D.C.L., Non-Parochial, Chapel Hill, N. C. 

I submit herewith my report for the year 1930. From time to 
time I have assisted the Rector of the Chapel of the Cross, Chapel 
Hill, in various services. Once in February I officiated in the 
Church of the Good Shepherd, Raleigh, and from March 1st 
through October I was in charge of the same Church as Acting 
Rector. All my official acts were in the Diocese of North Caroh'r 
and are duly recorded in the Parishes where they were performed. 



FORTY-EIGHTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 113 

1931 REPORTS FROM THE CLERGY. 

REV. W. H. MILTON, D.D., for St. James', Wilmington 

It should be noted that the clergy of St. James' Church serve the 
three congregations at Southport, Atkinson, and Burgaw, receiving 
no remuneration other than a small appropriation for traveling ex- 
penses. For this service no credit is received on the apportionment 
though the cost to the Diocese otherwise would be at least $1500.00 
for a single man. Each congregation enjoys at least one service a 
month with pastoral care. 



REV. W. A. LILLYCROP, for St. Paul's, Greenville. 

In addition to what is reported it should be recorded as a matter 
o? history that St. Paul's Church began the construction of its new 
Parish House and Chapel in May, 1930, and completed construction 
of the same in September, 1930. The Bishop, assisted by Rev. W. 
R. Noe and the Rector formally opened the new Chapel on the third 
Sunday in September, 1930. 

It should also be here reported that the Student Center of the 
Diocese of East Carolina, erected and equipped through the gen- 
erous gift of $3,000 from the former Girls' Friendly Society as a 
tribute to Mrs. Susan Price Noe was built connected to St. Paul's 
Parish House ; but with the understanding that it is the property of 
the Diocese for the exclusive use of the students of East Carolina 
Teachers College at Greenville. 

Since this Center was completed in September, the Student Work 
under the Student Secretary, Mrs. Jennie Morris Howard, has forged 
ahead until it is one of the outstanding pieces of student work in 
the South. ' " : 



APPENDIX "G" 



REPORT OF THE BOARD OF MANAGERS OF THE THOMPSON 

ORPHANAGE TO THE ANNUAL CONVENTION OF THE 

DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA JANUARY, 

1930—1931. 

^our home for dependent and needy children has sheltered darii-g 
the year 1930— 

114 children, 53 boys and 61 girls 
101 for the full year or 36,865 days 
Total days care 38,900 
Total meals served, 116,700 

Three children were dismissed during the year, two to their moth- 
er who had re-established her home, and a boy who graduated froai 
High School to a good position with the Southern Public Utilities 
or Charlotte. 

Ten children have been admitted after careful consideration of the 
coses and two weeks interment in the Infirmary f»r a thorough ex- 
amination by Drs. Hunter and Barrett. 

Present number of children 111, 51 boys and 60 girls. 

Full orphans 21 half orphans 83 of whom 47 are fatherless and 36 
motherless; 7 have both parents living. 

27 of these children are from the Diocese of East Carolina, 13 
from the Diocese of Western North Carolina, and 71 from the Dio- 
cese of North Carolina. 

The health of the children has been remarkably good. Outside 
of several groups of Tonsil operations and the interment of the in- 
coming children for a two weeks period, the doctors and Miss Rob- 
inson, the nurse at the Infirmary, have had little to do. 

As has been our custom for the last two or three years all chil- 
dren above the Kindergarten attend the Charlotte public schools 
Here they find a splendid equipment and the opportunity of taking 
vocational and technical courses, and further their outlook on life 



FORTY-EIGHTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 115 

1931 REPORT OF BOARD OF MANAGERS OF THOMPSON ORPHANAGE 

is broadened and their lives enriched by the contacts and friend- 
ships which they make. 

Invaluable training is given the little folks of the Kindergarter 
by Miss Nail, in such fundamental traits of good character as po- 
liteness, reverence, gentleness, quietness of voice and manner. 

Saint Mary's Chapel, recently remodeled and beautified, is the 
center of the life and activities of the Orphaange. To it the chil- 
dren love to come, and from it they receive inspiration and ( inval- 
uable training. 

The addition to the staff of Mr. A. S. Bynum, of Farmville, as 
Assistant Superintendent, has meant much in all departments of 
the work. Even in this year of drought and depression he has made 
thf farm a paying proposition, and has greatly improved our herd 
of dairy cattle. 

The Board of Managers wishes to express most grateful apprecia- 
tion to the Auxiliaries of East Carolina which are so beautifully 
clothing twenty-five of the children. 

"V our Board of Managers feels that there is much to be thankful 
for in this year of depression, the children committed to our care 
have been wonderfully well, and happy. Our splendid physical 
property and equipment is intact and unencumbered with debt. 
The Endowment Fund has grown considerably this past year. 
Contributions from "others" increased J200%, and, all bills are paid. 

The year past has surely taught us, that if only our hearts are 
aglow with deep devotion to, and faith in, God, all things are pos- 
sible. Respectfully submitted, 

COMMITTEE.

REPORT OP THE COMMITTEE ON THE STATE OP THE CHURCH 

The Committee on the State of the Church has been unable to 
give a complete report to the Convention because 16 parishes and 
missions of the Diocese have neglected to send to the Secretary the 
Parochial Reports axked for by January 1*. Now that the Conven- 
tion of the Diocese is meeting in the month of January instead of 
May the committee feels that an added effort should be made by each 
parish and mission in the Diocese to send these reports to the Sec- 
retary by January 15th of each year. 



FORTY-NINTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 29 



J 932 Report of Board of Managers of the Thompson Or. 



From the Bishop's address we find that during the year 1931, 
1 church was consecrated, 3 were orda ned to the priesthood, 1 
ordained as deacon, four clergy were transferred, 1 was received 
by transfer and 1 by ordinatic.n. The confirmations numbered 343, of 
which 46 were colored. 

As required by the following resolution, we are including in our 
report the name of each parish and mission whose annual report is 
not on file. 

"Resolved: That 't shall be the duty of the Committee on the 
State of the Church in its report at each Annual Convention to 
include therein the name of each and every parish and mission 
whose Annual Report is not on file as required by Canon." We have 
not received parochial reports from the following- places: 

Atkinson, St. Thomas* Maxton, St. Matthew's 

Clinton, St. Paul's North West, All Souls' 

Gatesville, St Mary's Whiteville, Grace Church 

Greenville, St. Paul's WrightsvilJe, St. Andrew's 

New Bern, St. Cyprian's Beaufort, St. Clement's 

Winton, St. John's Robersonville, Mission 

Belhaven, St. Mary's Roper, St. Ann's 

Burg-aw, St. Mary's Williamston, St. Ignatius' 

The Diocese closed the year 1931 with a deficit of ?4,200.00 
which : s a remarkable showing under the circumstances that we 
are undergoing in these distressing times. We earnestly pray that 
if each parish and mission carries out the full program of the 
Church as adopted by the Convention and the Executive Council 
and the Committee on Evangelism, Bast Carolina can look for- 
ward to greater progress for the extension of the Kingdom of 
God during the year 1932. 

The Committee recommends that a number of parishes and 
missions in the Diocese that once had Church Schools that are now 
abandoned that the Committee on Religious Education will take 
the matter under consideration and endeavor to place schools in 
these parishes and missions. 

The recommendation of the Committee was adopted. 

The Rev. E. W. Halleck read the Report of the Board of 
Managers of the Thompson Orphanage and Training In- 
stitution. (See Appendix "F")

Report of Committee on Insurance January 



Additional Insurance Camp Leach Property $ 1,760.00 

Insurance on Christ Church — Hope Mills 2.500.00 

$ 4,260.00 
Amount of Loss paid on Parish House at Hope 
Mills which reduced total insurance by such 
payment 2,000.00 

Making net increase in insurance I 2,260.00 

In July Christ Church and Parish House at Hope Mills burned. 
Tour Committee is not informed as to the amount of insurance on 
the Church or the valuation of the same. The Company carrying 
our schedule insurance paid the total insurance carried on the 
Parish House of $2,000.00, draft totaling this amount having been 
turned over to the Trustees. 

Payment from the Parishes and Missions for the insurance on 
their propert es, considering conditions, have been fair. It is our 
intention to endeavor to make further collections from time to 
time. "We are of the firm opinion that conditions are improving 
and we do bel'eve that the year 1932 will show a decided betterment

EXTENSION, WASHINGTON, N. C. 

WHEREAS, we understand that certain Parishes and Missions

Resolutions 



throughout the Diocese are not remitting promptly to the Treasurer 
of the Diocese contributions made by parishioners for Diocesan and 
General Church purposes, Now, therefore, be it 

RESOLVED. That it is the sense of this meeting that any Parish 
or Mission receiving contributions from any member thereof desig- 
nated as a contribution for Diocesan or General Church purposes, 
which fails to remit same to the Treasurer, is improperly withholding 
from the D ocese and the General Church money which rightfully 
belongs to it. 

RESOLVED, FURTHER, That it is the sense of this meeting that 
any Parish or Mission which uses for its own purposes money contri- 
buted specifically for Diocesan or General Church purposes commits 
a moral wrong. 

RESOLVED, FURTHER, That each member present at this meet- 
ing will, upon his return home discuss this question with members 
of his Vestry and the Treausrer of his Parish or Mission and will 
urge them to remit promptly to the Diocese all sums specifically 
contributed for Diocesan and General Church purposes. 

RESOLVED, FURTHER, Thar, this meeting recommend to the 
next Annual D'ocesan Convention that appropriate action be taken 
by the Convention to insure that all Parishes and Miss'ons which 
receive Diocesan support shall use the duplex envelopes, to the end 
that contributions intended for Diocesan or General Church purposes 
may be specifically indicated and that the fund contributed for this 
purpose may not be merged with or used for Parochial purposes. 

No. 4271. Embezzlement by treasurers of charitable and religious 
organizations. — If any treasurer or other financial officer of any 
benevolent or religious institution, society or congregation shall 
lend any of the moneys coming into, his hands to any other person or 
association without the consent of the institution, association or con- 
gregation to whom such moneys belong; or, if he shall fail to account 
for such moneys when called on he shall be guilty of a misdemeanor, 
and shall be punished by fine or imprisonment, or both, in the dis- 
cretion of the court. (Rev. s. 3409; Code, s. 1017; 1879 c. 105.) 

The resolutions were adopted.

APPENDIX "A" 



BISHOP'S ADDRESS 



BISHOP'S ANNUAL ADDRESS 



Brethren of the Clergy and Laity of the Diocese 
of East Carolina. 

"Grace be unto you, and peace from God our 
Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ." 

We welcome you to this, the forty-ninth Annual 
' Convention of our Diocese, and we pray that God 
the Holy Spirit may inspire us with courage and 
wisdom and faith as we plan for the development 
and extension of the work committed to our 
hands. 

Since our last Convention, four Bishops of the 
Church have entered into the larger life with 
God. May we stand as their names are read. 

Rt. Rev. Thomas James Garland, D. D. Bishop 
of Pennsylvania, died March 1, 1931. 

Rt. Rev. Richard Henry Nelson, D. D. Bishop of 
Albany, died April 25, 1931. 

Rt. Rev. John Poyntz Tyler, D. D.,Bishop of 
North Dakota, died July 13, 1931. 

Rt. Rev. Theodore Irving Reese, D. D. Bishop 
of Southern Ohio, died October 13, 1931. 

"May they rest in peace and may Light perpet- 
ual shine upon them." 

In beginning my annual address to the Con- 
vention of 1931, I said : 

"We are meeting in a time of unrest, confusion 
and fear, and I pray that God the Holy Ghost may 
so guide us in our deliberations and inspire us 
with His wisdom that we may be enabled to carry 
back to our people a message so compelling in its 
courage, and so unfaltering in its faith, that the 
whole Diocese may respond with renewed conse- 
cration to the call of Christ and His Church." 



42 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 



Bishop's Annual Address 



January 



As I look back today upon the record of this 
past year, I can say from a thankful heart that 
my prayer was answered, and that my confidence 
in your loyalty and devotion was not misplaced. 
The Diocese, as a whole, has responded with 
renewed consecration to its task, and in the valley 
of its material depression has found joy and peace 
as it strove to do the will of God. 

This new spirit of consecration found expres- 
sion in many ways, notably in the self-denying 
labors of our clergy, the sacrificial generosity of 
many of our laity, and the high spirit of adven- 
ture for Christ that has literally transformed the 
young people's organizations of our diocese. 

It has not been an easy year for those of us who 
have the life of the Diocese at heart. There have 
been many anxious hours, many long conferences 
on ways and means, many severe and heart-break- 
ing readjustments have been necessary — many 
cherished plans have gone to naught. 

Vacancies in our Missionary ranks have occur- 
red, as some of our Clergy have gone to other 
fields, and those vacancies remain unfilled. 
Opportunities for larger service have been lost 
through our inability to grasp and hold them, but 
through all of these difficulties, the Diocese has 
marched forward with faith undimmed and 
courage unabated. 

We have seen material values decline until 
former assets became liabilities, and shining stairs 
to wealth became stumbling stones in the bitter 
road of poverty, but as a people who bear the 
name of Christ, we have not lost consciousness 
of His leadership, or forgotten our place and our 
part in His redemptive plans. 



FORTY-NINTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 43 



1932 



Bishop's Annual Address 



We face another year, without any certainty 
of a return of material prosperity, but I believe 
we will face it as men and women who claim as 
their Master and Lord that glorious Son of God 
Who, for our sakes, became poor, and Who by the 
the mighty power of His offered life, made many 
rich. 

Our gracious task and privilege today, as indi- 
viduals, as parishes, as a Diocese, is to emphasize 
true values, to portray the riches of Christ, to 
show to the world that the loss of things may be 
nothing less than the dropping of the load that 
has kept us from attaining to the measure of the 
stature of the fullness of Christ. 

Ghandi, the "Hindu Saint", embraced voluntary 
poverty in order that he might be one in 
sympathy, one in heart, one in fellowship and 
purpose with the toiling millions of India. 

May God grant to us the will to use our involun- 
tary and temporary distress as a way to the mind 
of Jesus, and as a road over which we may walk, 
carrying our treasures' of sympathy and love 
to those bewildered, frightened brothers of ours, 
who, without faith and without hope, stand ready 
to curse their false gods and die. 

As we study the glorious history of the Chris- 
tian Church, it is borne in upon us that it was a 
poor church that entered upon that mighty ad- 
venture destined to transform the world. 

"'Having nothing, and yet possessing all 
things," that early band went forth in poverty to 
enrich the people of the earth. With no offering 
but their surrendered Christ centered lives, they 
laid the foundation of that Christian brother- 
hood, against which the gates of hell shall never 



44 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA

Bishop's Annual Address . 



prevail. Through the loving kindness of God, 
it may be that a Church, poor in material re- 
sources, but rich in spiritual power, may have the 
glorious privilege of leading a weary, broken 
world back to Him. Welcome poverty, rejoice 
in adversity, if they be God's hand-maidens sent 
to lead His Church to a realization of its mighty 
mission. 

At such a time as this, it is well for us to ask 
ourselves "What is the mission of the Church?" 
for I fear some of us have forgotten, if we ever 
knew, just why our blessed Lord sent His Church 
into the world. 

Broadly speaking, the mission of the Church is 
to save the world; to redeem society; to exalt 
righteousness; to transform lives; to act as the 
leaven in all human relations. 

Its mission is not only to minister to a few privi- 
leged individuals, but to minister, through privi- 
leged men and women, to the underprivileged 
people of all. the world. 

Its mission is not only to gather little flocks to- 
gether here and there and keep them safe for the 
heavenly fold, but to enlist and inspire shepherds 
who will go out in the name and power of Jesus 
and bring in those without the fold. 

Its mission is not to save itself, but to save the 
world, and until it learns that lesson, it has not 
even begun to know the mind of Christ. 

To the Church was committed the sacraments 
of love and grace, but even the sacraments become 
empty gestures unless the Church remains sacra- 
mental—unless it inspires its members to offer 
and present themselves as a living sacrifice. The 
bread of the Altar remains bread unless from 



FORTY-NINTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 45 



1932 

Bishop's Annual Address 



the Altar we go with sacramental lives to feed a 

hungry world. 

"Sudden before our outward, open vision, 

Millions of faces crowding up to view ; 

Sad eyes that say, "For us is no provision ; 

Give us your Saviour too! 

"Give us", they cry, "your cup of consolation, 

Never to our outstretching hands 'tis passed. 

We long for the Desire of every Nation — 

And, oh, we die so fast!" 

There is no possible place in the program of 

God for a Parish that is so intent upon saving 

itself, and preserving its integrity, that it loses 

sight of its part in the sacrificial plans of Jesus. 
We are here today because our Lord taught His 
followers the world-wide mission of Christianity 
— because He taught them to pray not "Thy King- 
dom come, Thy will be done in Judea", but "Thy 
Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth." Are 
we big enough and brave enough to dare to try 
to live up to that ideal today? 

The mission of the Church in East Carolina can 
be nothing less tha? the mission of the Church in 
the first century, for it is the same Church. It 
is the channel of the same sacraments; it bears 
the name of the same Lord; to it has come the 
same commission. 

It must not falter. In God's name, it cannot 
fail. It must continue to give itself in devoted 
service to the Judea of its organized membership. 
It must minister with unflagging zeal to the 
Samaria of forgotten and neglected people within 
its borders. It must, with the love of Christ in 
its heart, send its life to the uttermost bounds of 
the world. 



46 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 



Bishop's Annual Address 



January 



With such a vision before us — come distress — 
come poverty — come valleys of depression — we 
will go forward ; we will win victories, for we will 
be following in the train of the Son of God, Who 
has never led His Church to defeat. 

We expect to make sacrifices this year ; we will 
reduce expenses to the lowest possible point. Your 
Bishop and other Clergy will gladly and joyfully 
share in such reductions ; but we are not worthy 
to bear the name of Christ if we use this period 
of depression as an excuse for selfishness, and 
hold back our offerings to God in order to make 
ourselves safe. 

We are not worthy to bear the name of Christ, 
or to claim membership in His body, the Church, 
if we begin our program of economy by cutting 
the very heart from that Body while we whine 
over the curtailment of our luxuries. 

No. we must be honest with ourselves, and 
honest with our God, in this great hour of the 
Church's opportunity. We cannot evade respon- 
sibility because the way has become difficult, or 
retire from the ranks of God's forces because of 
approaching danger. 

■vThe Church has the only answer to the cry of 
a bewildered world for leadership. The Church 
alone can show the right path to men and nations 
who have lost the way. The Church alone can 
give to the world those true values which neither 
time nor shock of circumstances can destroy ; but 
the Church and its message and its mission must 
mean all of that to us if it is to mean a little bit 
of that to those who look to us for guidance and 
for light. 

St. Paul, facing a great opportunity for service, 



FORTY-NINTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 47

Bishop's Annual Address 



realizing that his journey would be fraught with 
danger, said with quiet confidence : 

"A great door and effectual is opened unto me, 
and there are many adversaries." 

May this coming year, with its uncertainties, 
its call for sacrificial devotion, its promise of 
danger, be to us an open door to finer service for 
God and humanity. A Door through which we 
will enter with confident faith, with holy courage, 
with unflagging zeal, with the certainty of 
victory. 

Material values may continue to be shaken; 
worldly tabernacles may be destroyed, but those 
values committed to our trust, the eternal pur- 
poses and promises of our God, unshaken, will 
remain. 

"For the foundation of God standeth sure." 

"Crowns and thrones may perish, 
Kingdoms rise and wane, 
But the Church of Jesus 
Constant will remain; 
Gates of hell can never 
'Gainst that Church prevail ; 
We have Christ's own promise 
And that cannot fail." 

"Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stead- 
fast, unmovable, always abounding in the work 
of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labor 
is not in vain in the Lord."

REPORT OF THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY TO THE 
DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Right Reverend Father in God— 

The Woman's Auxiliary respectfully report their work 
for 1931 to you and to the Diocesan Convention. We are 
glad and thankful that it will bring you the information 
of all obligations paid and of progress in many lines of en- 
deavor. For the second year, the Auxiliary in several places 
had banks to close on their funds. None of them asked to 
be relieved of their appotrionment but went quickly to work 
and made the money again. Of course the work has been 
done under greater difficulty than ever before. Considering 
the financial conditions and the fact that there were so few 
services in some of the small places, the women have done 
remarkably well. The Convocation of Wilmington made 
a decided increase in their gifts this year. The Bishop's 
Fund amounted to $728.22. The United Thank Offering 
was $2,635.12. The Supply Work, which has functioned 
remarkably under the new leadership of Mrs. T. P. An- 
thony, was valued at $2,231.93, which was slightly less than 
the year before because of low prices. Church School Boxes 
which are handled by Mrs. William Von Eberstein, were 
valued a't $426.00. 

The women of the Diocese were asked by the Diocesan 
Convention to assume the leadership in raising the balance 
of the amount, $2,300.00, which was accepted by the Dio- 
cese for the Advance Work Program of the Church. Al- 
though the Auxiliary is convinced that this is the obligation 
of the men, women and children of the Diocese, the women 
undertook it. They are presenting an additional gift of 
$619.90. A number of branches help in their parishes and 
missions to raise their Diocesan Budget. This year they 
report $892.00 for this purpose. 



84 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 



Report of Woman's Auxiliary 



January 



Our National and Provincial pledges were paid and many 
objectives contributed to. Divided into the five fields of 
service, the financial gifts are as follows : 

Parish $ 5,001.94 

Community 2,580.00 

Diocese 3,879.51 

Nation 223.76 

World 828.41 

The total of all gifts is $18,534.89 

$1,351.69 more than in 1930. 

Fifty-eight boxes were sent to the Thompson Orphanage 
to clothe the East Carolina children who are there. There 
was great need of clothing in many places in the Diocese 
and the Auxiliaries 'supplied them. The Bureau of Sup- 
plies has grown and twenty-seven fine boxes were con- 
tributed to it. This box work was in addition to boxes 
sent through National headquarters to Glen Alpin. N. C, 
Nenana and Anvik, Alaska. N. Mexico, Emerald Hodgeson 
Hospital, Sewanee. 

Miss Jessie Peace has 15 secretaries doing Church Peri- 
odical Club Work through the Auxiliary. Greater interest 
and renewed effort has resulted in a large number of maga- 
zines, books, cards, calendars, etc., being sent as directe 1 
by the Club. It is good to see this work developing again. 
All the departmental work is established and growing. 

Forty-seven branches reported Study Classes to Miss 
Winslow, Chairman of the Department of Religious Educa- 
tion. There were an average of over two classes a year for 
these groups. The book's studied were varied. The Bible. 
India on the March and other books on India, the General 
Church Program, Our Expanding Church, the Prayer Book, 



1932 



FORTY-NINTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 85 



Report of Woman's Auxiliary 



Practice of Prayer, Ways of the Kingdom of God and the 
Life of Christ. Many Program meetings were held also and 
an interchange of books was made by some groups. Miss 
Angie Manning Taylor, of Chicago, through the influence 
of Miss Cornelia Harris's came to the Diocese and con- 
ducted a number of very valuable classes. Her work was 
enthusiastically received in different sections of the Diocese. 

The Auxiliary has been interested in the work of the 
Student Center in Greenville and they have provided the 
money for the expense fund of the Student Secretary. This 
year it amounted to $207.32. Tin's year complications 
arose about her salary and the Auxiliary was called on 
again and contributed $277.82. 

The organized work of Christian Social Service is much 
newer in the Diocesan Auxiliary than that of Religious Edu- 
cation. In the last three years it has grown by leaps and 
bounds. There has been such evident and desperate need 
for it and the response has been generous and beautiful. 
There are now actually forty-six committees actively work- 
ing and reporting to Mrs. Out'land. A few of them in the 
larger places are working in close touch with civic organi- 
zations. 

Two women voluteered for life service during this year. 
There were twenty-seven corporate Communions held for 
the Auxiliary and fifteen Quiet Days The growth of the 
summer meetings and work accomplished at ? time that wai 
not formerly used for church service is very encouraging. 

On the 12th day of February the Christian women of 
North America plan to have a great World Day of Prayer. 
We are asking the cooperation of the clergy in reaching 
every single Parish and Mission in the Diocese for prayer 
services. In many place's it can be made a great community 
effort. Certainly the world needs united and puroosefui 
intercession in these times of unusual sorrow and depriva- 
tion. The Auxiliary has observed each Day of Prayer that 



86 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 



Report of Woman's Auxiliary 



January 



has been proposed by the councils of church women and 
have found them helpful and fine. In many places the differ- 
ent denominations have made and carried out their plans 
together. 

For the vear. 1932. we will put special emphasis on trying 
to get more women and girls interested in the work of the 
Church. We will sponsor the Advance Work Program 
again. We hope to increase a knowledge and love of the 
United Thank Offering through the very experiences of the 
depression and our personal gratitude for the blessings we 
have received. 

Respectfully submitted, 

JANIE W. MacMILLAN.

MINUTES OF EXECUTIVE COUNCIL MEETING 

HELD IN ST. JAMES' PARISH HOUSE, 

WILMINGTON, N. C, MAY 25, 1932. 



The Executive Council of the Diocese of East Carolina 
met in St. James' Parish House, Wilmington, N. C, at 
11.00 A. M., May 25, 1932. 

The roll was called, showing the following present: Rt. 
Rev. Thomas C. Darst, D. D., Rev. W. H. Milton, D. D„ 
Rev. Walter R. Noe, Rev. W. A. Lilly-prop, Rev. C. E. Will- 
iams, Rev. I. deL. Brayshaw, Rev. Alexander Miller, Mr. 
George C. Royall, Mr. George B. Elliott, Mr. John R. Tolar, 
Mr. W. B. Campbell, Mr. John G. Dawson, Mrs. H. J. Mac- 
Mil'lan, Mrs. J. Q. Bec'kwith. 

The minutes were read and approved. 

The resignation of Mrs. Victor J. Shelburne as a member 
of the Executive Council was accepted with sincere appre- 
ciation of her services, and Mrs. Fred L. Outland was 
elected to fill out her unexpired term. 

The resignation of Mrs. H. J. MacMillan was also ac- 
cepted with regret and appreciation and Mrs. W. S. Carawan 
was elected to fill out her unexpired term. 

Mr. John R. Tolar offered the following resolution, which 
was adopted : 

"RESOLVED, That the representation of the women on 
the Executive Council shall consist of. the President and 
two , Vice-Presidents of the Woman's Auxiliary and that 
their terms of office shall run concurrently." 

The resolution was then referred to the Committee on 
Canons with the request that they present to the Conven- 



94 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Minutes of Executive Council January 

tion a suitable amendment to the Canon on the Executive 
Council. 

Air. John R. Tolar, Chairman of the Department of Fi- 
nance, stated that his Department had prepared for the 
Executive Council a budget for the fiscal year, May 1, 1932, 
to April 30, 1933, based on the results of the first four 
months of the fiscal year ended April 30, 1932. He stated 
that he had prepared the estimated receipts on two bases. 
The more conservative of these indicated that there would 
be received from the parishes and missions on apportion- 
ments $34,830.00; from the General Church $5,130.00 and 
from interest and rents $5,745.00; or a total expected in- 
come of $45,705.00. As this amount would practically 
balance the budget of expenses, Mr. Tdlar recommended 

that this budget be accepted. 

Upon recommendation of the Chairman of the Depart- 
ment of Finance, the department was authorized to revise 
the budget if necessary each quarter in case the income 
from all sources should shrink to such an extent as to 
render such revision advisable. 

On motion of Rev. W. H. Milton, D. D., the Treasurer 
of the Diocese was directed to send to the Treasurer of 
the National Council each month their proportionate part 
of our receipts for the Church's Program. 

On motion of Rev. W. H. Milton, D. D., it was decided to 
have a retreat for the Clergy of the Diocese in October in 
preparation for an Every Member Visitation. 

On motion of Mr. John R. Tolar, it was decided to have 
a meeting of laymen with some of the clergy at Camp 
Leach on Sunday, June 19th, arid Mr. George B. Elliott, 
Chairman of the Department of Missions and Church Ex- 
tension, was requested to urge the Associate Members of 
his Department to attend. 

On motion of Mr. John R. Tolar, the Treasurer of the 



FORTY NINTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 95 



1932 



Minutes of Executive Council 



Diocese was instructed to notify the parishes and missions 
of the acceptance of the budget for the present fiscal year 
and to urge them if possible to contribute the amount of 
their apportionments. 

On motion of Mr. John R. Tolar, it was decided ''that no 
aided parish or mission is eligible for a diocesan appropri- 
ation unless the accepted plans for the Every Member 
Canvass are carried out." 

Mr. John R. Tolar offered the following resolution, which 
was adopted : 

"RESOLVED That the Treasurer of the Diocese be auth- 
orized to borrow up to $12,000.00 for the necessary financ- 
ing of diocesan work, and to pledge such stocks and borfds 
belonging to the diocese as may be necessary to secure the 
loan." 

The Bishop made a report on the indebtedness of St. 
Andrew's, Wrightsville Sound, to the American Church 
Building Fund Commission, and on motion, the whole 
matter was referred to the Finance Department for study 
and the Chairman of that Department was instructed to 
write Dr. Pardee for information and instructions. 

The Bishop stated that the National Department of Re- 
ligious Education would not be able to appropriate more 
than $750.00 a year, beginning with September, 1932, to- 
wards the salary of Mrs. Jennie M. Howard, Student 
Worker. 

On motion of Mr. John R. Tolar it was decided that 
Mrs. Howard's work should be continued. 

Aliss Cornelia Van B. Harris asked for a leave of absence 
during the fall for some special work at New York Uni- 
versity, and this was granted. 

As Miss Harris had been offered work in another Dio-

Minutes of Executive Council 



cese and it was necessary to give her very definite informa- 
tion regarding" her work in the Diocese in the future, the 
following resolution was adopted r 

"The Council, with great appreciation of Miss Harris' 
work in carrying on the Young People's Work and that of 
the Department of Religious Education in the Diocese of 
East Carolina, does not feel that we can, in view of the 
financial situation in the Diocese, continue the work beyond 
the current year." 

On motion it was suggested to the Trustees of the Dio- 
cese the creation of funds for administrative purposes from 
the excess of special funds. 

On motion of Rev. Alexander Miller, it was decided to 
add to our printed statements that the budget adopted for 
this year does not enable the Bishop to fill vacant places 
and to urge the people to give in excess of the amounts 
promised, if possible, to take care of this pressing need. 

There being no further business, the Executive Council 
adjourned. WALTER R. NOE, 

Secretary.

APPENDIX "F' 



REPORT OF BOARD OF MANAGERS OF THOMP- 
SON ORPHANAGE TO THE CONVENTION 

In times like these your Board of Managers is very happy 
to report that the year 1931 closed with no indebtedness of 
any kind on the Institution, and without having had to bor- 
row any money from the banks. 

However, in redrafting the budget for 1932 it was 
thought wise to reduce all salaries by a 10% cut, and also 
to whittle down the budget in most every department. 

In consequence of this emergency measure your Board 
of Managers wishes to voice a most earnest appeal for your 
continued generous support during this present year. 

It has been well said — "The children must be held in 
special guardianship during this period of readjustment." 

There have been 120 children cared for during the year. 
11 have been placed and 7 received. 

At present time there are 109 being cared for 

69 from the Diocese of North Carolina. 

25 from the Diocese of East Carolina. 

15 from the Diocese of Western North Carolina. 

A splendid forward step was taken in the late fall when 
Miss Claudia Hunter, a specially trained and experienced 
worker, made a thorough investigation into the mental pos- 
sibilities of the children, with the aim to fit them more 
intelligently for a vocation in life. 

Miss Hunter was assisted by Dr. Harry W. Crane, Psy- 
chiatrist of the State Board of Public Welfare and also of 



FORTY NINTH ANNUAL CONVENTION 101 

1932 Report of Hoard of M:in;imrs of the Thompson Or. 

the Faculty of the University of North Carolina. 

The Superintendent and staff are, with the aid of a 
special committee, endeavoring to carry out all the sugges- 
tions made by these experts for the betterment of the work 
with those children committed to our care. 

Mrs. Jane't Mays, a trained teacher, has joined the staff 
and is helping to check up more carefully upon the school 
reports and any school misplacements and is also giving 
some coaching to those who are falling behind in their work. 

Most grateful thanks are due the women of the Auxili- 
aries of the three Dioceses for their splendid cooperation 
given in the clothing of the children, and for their kind 
interest in their adopted children. 

The following comparative tables are submitted : 

COST OF CARE AT A PER CAPITA OF $271.52 

Diocese of North Carolina (69 children) $18,734.88 

Diocese of East Carolina (25 children) 6,788.00

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON THE STATE OF THE CHURCH 
This is the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Diocese of East 

Carolina. The Diocese has bad a ster.dy growth during the fifty years 

and has been an outstanding factor in the work of the General 

Church. 

The Bishop, in his annual report, has been givimg the sum total of 

Confirmations for all the missions of a clergyman, but this year we 

are presenting each of them separately. 
Statistics do not show the real standing of the number of com-

Report of Committee on State of the Ch urch May 

municants in the Diocese. Bishop Darst has been with us for eight- 
een years and when he came we had practically the number of com- 
municants we have now, 5,500. 

The Bishop has laid his hands on over 6,700 persons during his 
Episcopate. There must be some reason for the loss of this large 
number. Every rector of every parish and mission should make an 
earnest effort to asccertain the cause of this loss. 

There has been generally a fine response to the financial situation 
in the Diocese but during the past three years we have not been 
able to balance the budget. In spite of making every effort to do 
so by curtailing expenses and economizing as much as possible, 
still our account shows a deficit of $22,000. 

The Bishop made 104 visitations during 1932 and delivered 134 ser- 
mons and addresses. 

Consecrated one church (Christ, Hope Mills.) 

Ordained 2 Deacons and 1 Priest. 

Transferred 1 Clergyman and received 1 Clergyman. 

Admitted 4 Postulants and 3 Candidates. 

Confirmed 451 of which 84 were Confirmed in our colored parishes 
and missions. 

The colored Communicants of the Diocese represent about 1-8 of 
our communicant strength, yet they presented nearly 1-5 of the 
confirmations in 19'32.

for the first day of the session of 1934 and the Secretary 
was instructed to give due notice: 

"Canon 14. Suggest possible change in Section 1 to read as follows: 
•Consisting of not less than three and not more than twelve mem- 
bers, who shall be communicants of lawful age, and in good standing. 
One third of the members of any vestry may be women. The mem- 
bers of the Vestry thus elected shall continue in office until their 
successors are chosen,' " 

On recommendation of the Committee on Canons, action 
on the resolution of Mr. John R. Tolar was postponed until 
next year and the Secretary was directed to give due notice. 

The Rev. Stephen Gardner invited the Convention to 
meet in St. Peter's, Washington, in 1934 and on motion the

38 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 



Report of Department of Religion* Education May- 
First of all, there has been, promoted throughout the Diocese a 
sp.endid work among the young people of the Church. Through 
district meetings hundreds of the young people of the Diocese have 
been brought together and awakened to the fact that the Church has 
a place and a need for its youth. Through the Diocesan Camps held 
at Camp Leach, the Department has sought to give to the older 
young people joyful companionship, recreation, inspiration and 
training in leadership, under the expert direction of leaders from 
the Diocese and the Church at large. For the younger boys and 
girls the Department has presented a balanced program of play and 
training adapted to the needs and interests of their age. While even 
the very young children have been given a share in the happy privi- 
leges of Camp life with a Church program, suitable for them. 

Out of this has come already several definite things. There is a 
splendid spirit Oif loyalty to the Church among the young people of 
this Diocese; and there is an ever growing stream ot young life 
coming to the Bishop to offer their lives in life service to theif Lord 
and Master Jesus Christ. While only God measures the strengthen- 
ing of the lay life of the Diocese as these boys and girls grow into 
maturity surrounded by the love of their Mother Church. 

Much credit for this work among the young people of the Diocese 
should go to al) these splendid men and women who have given 
of their time and abilities through Parish and Camp activities. But 
a very large share of the success of al! that the Department has 
achieved for our young people is due to the tireless and faithful 
work of the Director of the Department of Religious Education, Miss 
Cornelia Van B. Harris. In this hour of awakening of the youth of 
our Diocese we need hier services as never before. 

Tn the e econd place, the Department of Religious Education has 
continued the splendid work at the Diocesan student center at 
Friendly Hall, Greenville. N. G, Mrs. Jennie Morris Howard is filling 
a place there that is a cvedit to the Student work in the Province of 
Sewanee. Here students of our own and neighboring Dioceses are 
helped to adjusit their lives to the difficult and trying period of 
College life. Mrs. Howard helps them with their intellectual prob- 
lems, guides them into a normal Church life during their College 
days, and then sends them out prepared to take their places in the 
work of the Woman's Auxiliary, the great natural vehicle for the 
women of the Church as they seek to give themselves in service t© 
the Church. 

Since Mrs.. Howard has been carrying on the Student work for 
our Diocese not a single student from any Parish who came to 
college without being confirmed has left college without being 
presented for confirmation. 

For these two splendid activities of the Department of Religious 
Education: the Young People's work and the College work the Dio- 
cese of East Carolina can be justly proud and thankful.

The Committee on Insurance presented a report, as fol- 
lows : 

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON INSURANCE 

Your Committee on Insurance beg to report that they have worked 
most diligently on the handling of the Diocesan insurance during the 
past year. The amount of insurance carried has been cut so as to 
reduce this item and in so far as possible we have endeavored not to 
carry any more insurnce than would be collectable in the event of a 
loss. 

The wisdom of this plan has been clearly demonstrated and today 
we firmly believe that the property in the Diocese is better protected 
at a less cost than the property of any other Diocese in the country. 

As heretofore each parish and mission has been billed with the cost 
of their insurance. Considering that history does not record a gene- 
ral condition so disturbing and disastrous as that which our genera- 
tion has been experiencing, we believe that we have fared better in 
the past year than usual. The greatest thinkers and the mightiest 
man-power have applied themselves to produce a remedy but it was 
an All Wise Providence that sent us a leader to Washington in Pre- 
sident Roosevelt to show us how to meet the test and to prove our- 
selves equal to the tasks ahead of us. 

Your Committee has a firm faith in the future so we must take

it will be a pleasure to render any service within our power.

Rev B. F. Huske, D. D., offered the following resolution, 
which was adopted : 

"Resolved That whereas the Fiftieth Annual Coffivewtion of the 
Diocese of East Carolina has celebrated the Fiftieth Anniversary of 
the Organization of this Diocese, thereby increasing the number of 
those in attendance for this occasion, and adding greatly to the task 
of entertaining the delegates to the Convention and others present 
for this celebration of the fiftieth birthday of the Diocese, and that 
Whereas the entertainment of delegates to the Convention and of 
others present has been most cordial and sufficient and that a won- 
derful spirit of co-operation has been constantly manifested by the 
Rector and members of Christ Church Parish, St, Cyprian's Parish 
and by the good people of the community generally, the heartfelt 
thanks of the members of this Convention are hereby extended to the 
Rector, Wardens, Vestry and Choir of Christ Church, and to all 
members of this Parish in which we had the privilege of holding this 
Convention, and to the Rector and people of St. Cyprian's Parish, who 
have so generously and hospitably extended all possible kindness to 
us during our entire stay in this city. We also sincerely thaink the 
members of the Parish Organizations who have graciously contribu- 
ted to the success of this occasion. The thanks of the Convention 
are extended also to the newspapers of the city for the generous 
space given to our meetings and to the good people of this entire 
community for their genuine kindness to the members of this Con- 
vention. In particular we wish to thank the New Bern Sun-Journal 
for the splendid Diocesan Anniversary Editon of that paper. The 
ConVenton gratefully records its pleasure and appreciation of the 
privilege of holding its Fiftieth Annual Convention in the historic 
Parish of Christ Church, New Bern."

3n iUenroriam 

THE REV. GEORGE WILLIAM LAY, D. C. L. 

Priest of the Church 

Christian Teacher and Educator 

Born in Huntsville, Ala., 1860 

Died in Durham, N. C, August 12, 1932 

From the date of his ordination to the diaeonate in 1S85, and to 
the priesthood In 1880, Dr. Lay faithfully and unsparingly conse- 
crated himself to the service of Jesus Christ and His Church.. .After 
his ordination as deacon, he hccame assistant minister of St. Paul's 
Church. Erie, Pennsylvania. After a short time at this post, and in 
IVewburgh. N. Y.„ he hecnme a Master at St. Paul's School, Concord, 
Sfew Hampshire. In this work he continued for nineteen years, until 
in 1907, he accepted the call to the Rectorhip of St. Mary's School, 
Raleigh, Vorth Carolina. Here during- a period of eleven years he 
labored faithfully and fruitfully, greatly strengthening: this splen- 
did educational agency of the Church. In August, 191S. he became 
Rector of Christ Church, Springfield, Massachusetts. From Septem- 
ber, 1919, until his retirement from active service in 1928, he was 
the Rector of St. Pnnl's Chnrch, Beaufort. IV. C. After he retired, f*r. 
Lay lived at Chapel Hill, N. C, until the time of his death; but con- 
tinued an honored clergyman of this Diocese, always talcing an active 
part In the Annual Conventions of the Diocese of Fast Carolina, as 
shown by the fact that he was Chairman of the Committee on Ca- 
nons Chairman of the Department of Religious Education, member 
of the Executive Council, and Examining Chaplain. 

Faithful to every trust, and honest in every act and speech, 
Dr. Lay was always an earnest seeker after truth. This marked 
trait of character in Dr. Lay is well described in the words of his 
friend and associate, the Reverend Alfred S. Lawrence — 

"Some time before his death. Dr. lay requested that on his 
tombstone should be inscribed the Greek words meaning 'Then shall 
I know'. These words are a splendid summary of a splendid life. 
With everv effort he sought to know, learning something fresh al- 
most to the day of his death. And so he passed on, ready for that 
fuller knowledge that now is his." 



APPENDIX "A' 



BISHOPS ADDRESS 



BISHOP'S ANNUAL ADDRESS 



Brethren of the Clergy and I.aity 

of the Diocese of East Carolina: 

"Grace be unto you, and peace from God our Father, and from the 
Lord Jesus Christ.'' 

We welcome you to the Fiftieth Annual Convention of the Diocese 
of East Carolina and as we celebrate this significant anniversary 
and offer up our prayers of praise and thanksgiving for God's 
guidance during the last half-century of our life as a Diocese, may 
we show forth our thankfulness by renewed dedication of ourselves 
to the service of Christ and His Church. 

Since our last convention, the following Bishops of the Church 
have entered into the larger life with God: .. 

The Rt. Rev. William Walter Webb, D. D. ',.,. 

Bishap of Milwaukee. 
The Rt. Rev. Joseph Blount Cheshire, D. D. 

Bishop of North Carolina. 
The Rt. Rev. Junius Moore Horner, D. D. 

Bishop of Western North Carolina. 

We extend our loving sympathy to the people of our two sister 
dioceses in this state who have been bereaved of their venerable and 
honored leaders. 

From the ranks of our own clergy, we have lost one who will be 
sadly missed in the Counsels of the Church, the Rev. George W. Day, 
D. C. D., and as is eminently fitting, a page of our next Journal will 
be set. apart as a memorial to our dear friend and brother. 

It is not my purpose today to deliver ah historical address, as that 
pleasant task has been committed to an honored layman of East 
Carolina who is especially qualified to perform that Important duty, 
but I must express my sense of profound gratitude that T have been 
permitted to serve this Diocese for more than one-third of those 
fifty years, and to thank you, my friends and fellow laborers for 
your loving and loyal co-operation from the first day until now. 

The past year has been the most trying and uncertain year, finan- 
cially, since I became Bishop of East Carolina, but I am thankful to 
report that it has been one of the most, fruitful and satisfactory 
years, spiritually, that I have known since I caime to you eighteen 
years ago. 

The Clergy with fine faith and courage have faced their acute 
personal problems, and the problems of their parishes and missions 
with cheerfulness and ability, and have shown real leadership at a 
time when their people, perplexed and despondent, were seeking 
contacts with genuine values. 

Because of this leadership, as shown in more intensive pastoral 
work and in greater emphasis upon the Church's answer to the cry 
of the human soul seeking peace and stability, I had the privilege 



48 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 



Bishop's Annual Address May 

of confirming four hundred and fifty-one persons during the year, 
which was one hundred more than the average for past years. 

In many places throughout the Diocese, I have seen parishes and 
missions taking on new life and this has been shown, not only 
in the beautiful and well planned work o-f the Woman's Auxiliary 
and kindred societies, but notably in the increasing interest in the 
work of the Brotherhood of St. Andrew, the fine enthusiasm of the 
Young People's Service League, and the strengthening and reviving 
of many of our weak missions and Sunday Schools through the con- 
secrated labors of devoted laymen and women who are giving them- 
selves as never before in joyful, willing service. 

For the fourth consecutive year, our people, especially that large 
number who depend upon the soil for their support, have suffered 
reverses. Debts have increased, unavoidable mortgages have laid 
crushing weights upon shoulders already burdened, hard won earn- 
ings have been swept away or made unavailable through the closing 
of banks, but through it all there has been manifested a high courage 
and unwillingness to admit defeat that has thrilled my soul and 
made me thank God that I have been permitted to serve such a 
people at such a time as this. 

It would be meaningless and untrue if I stated that all of our 
people have been sacrificial in their giving to Christ and His Church 
during the past year. There have been many instances of high and 
costly devotion, but unfortunately, that spirit has not characterized 
all of us. Some, putting first things first, have denied themselves 
personal comforts in order to keep faith with God. Others, putting 
personal preservation first, have sacrificed His cause in order to pro- 
tect self, and because this is true, the Church in America is crippled 
at the time when God is calling it to battle; feeble when He is call- 
ing for its strength; confused and uncertain when the world is de- 
manding clear and definite leadership; counselling retreat when the 
bugle call of the captain calls for advance. 

As one who at least tries to read the signs of our times, and listen 
to the voices that come up from the hearts of men today, I speak 
solemnly out of the deep conviction of my soul when I say that the 
Church in America musit go forward or stand in grave danger of 
losing its soul. 

God has not brought us thus far for no purpose. We have been 
brought to this high day of privilege in order that we may hold this 
day for God. We have come to this tragic era of material disaster 
in order that we may clear the wreckage from the minds of men 
and build upon enduring foundations that Kingdom of God on earth 
for which Christ labored, and for the establishment of which, He 
counted it worthwhile to die; 

The need of the world today is for a witnessing Church, a Church 
conscious of its mission, venturing greatly for Christ, a Church con- 
fident of Victory, consecrated to its task. Such a Church can and 
will permeate human society with new purpose and power, and 
lead a bewildered people in the way of sanity and peace. Above all, 



FIFTIETH ANNUAL CONVENTION 49 



3 - l:i:; Bishon's Annual Aduresa 



it must know and proclaim the Gospel of its Lord, for "If the trumpet 
give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to the battle." 
One of our younger Bishops in speaking to his convention a few 
months ago said: "The contest is not between the Christian Church 
and partially true world religions, but between the Church and the 
Prince of Darkness who would crush to death every vestige of any 
religion whatsoever. God forbid that we should be neutral in this 
matter. The side that makes the most sacrifice is the side that 
will win. Our missionary program this coming year will undoubtedly 
call for self-denial and sacrifice, unless we are ready to surrender to 
the darkness of this world which would liquidate God, the Church 
and all religion. The Cross is the symbol of sacrifice. The nails in 
it are not jewels, but just nails. The missionary spirit will turn 
those nails into jewels which will glisten with a wondrous radiance 
as we lift up that Royal Cross that the peoples may see it and be 
drawn to Him. We hope the deliberations of this Convention will 
rise to spiritual heights as never before by planning not how little, 
but ho,w much we can do to bring Jesus the Saviour and God's chil- 
dren closer together." 

Surely, that is our chief concern as we come together at this 
critical hour in the world's life. Not how little, but how much can 
we do to bring the saving power of the Gospel into the task of 
reshaping into beauty and order a broken and confused world 

Our temptaition, because of conditions, will be to reduce here and 
eliminate there and retreat yonder in order to balance a budget 
based upon "reasonable expectations" and of course I agree that 
we should be guided in such matters by our knowledge of the wil- 
lingness of our people to maintain the work entrusted to us, but 
we must not limit our vision to the narrow boundaries of budgets, or 
confine our hopes to the measure of our present available resources. 

Not until we have reached the full limit of sacrificial giving, not 
until we have poured out the full measure of loyal devotion to His 
cause, can we retreat without dishonor. 
If we are not honest with ourselves and with our God when we say 
"Silver and gold have I none", we may expect no response from a 
crippled world when we say "In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, 
rise up and walk". 

A brilliant modern writer, who is a profound student of human 
affairs, in a recent article in the "New Deal" said at the conclusion 
of a searching analysis of present conditions: 

The "New Deal" will not be dealt to us while we sit at our ease. 
It requires labors and struggles which our generation will begin, 
but of which it will not see the end. There should be no illusions 
as to the greatness of the times in which we are called. These are 
times of momentous change in the habits of men. Those who are 
privileged to live through the years ahead will see how history is 
made." 

Conscious of the same impelling truth, our President in that high 



50 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 



Bishop's Annual Address May 

hour of his dedication to the service of God and his country said. 
"Truly this is a day of consecration.'' 

May we, the Clergy and Laity of this Diocese in this hour crowd- 
ed with danger and fear and compelling opportunities, make it our 
day of dedication to the only cause that can take the broken hopes 
of men and mould them into beauty, the only cause that can take 
the marred lives of men and restore them their heritage as sons of 
God. Truly this must be our day of consecration if we are to bear 
our full part in shaping the civilization of tomorrow 

Nothing less than our best will suffice now, for the world is weary 
of broken promises and shoddy values. It is looking for truth and 
stability and high honor and a cause that neither time nor shock 
of material circumstances can destroy. 

To our hands has been committed that cause. God help us to 
make it real in our lives and in the lives of those whom we are 
privileged to help. 

In God's name may we share with those seeking ones that better 
and more abundant life which our Master Christ lived and taught 
others to live. 

May the name Christian which we unworthily bear be so trans- 
formed by our realization of its meaning that it may become to us 
and to others the shining symbol of a great faith as we walk the 
difficu't rcr.ds of common life. 

They are waiting for us to lead, these weary disillusioned ones 
who have been deserted by their false gods, but they will not wait 
too long, for other voices are calling, other influences, sinister and 
deadly, are working in the hearts of men. 

If our religion means anything to us, if our al'egiance to Christ is 
something more than a pious attitude, if our membership in the 
Church carries with it the consciousness of our enlistment as soldiers 
and servants of the living God, we cannot fail Him and those for 
whom He died at this hour otf bitter need.- 

At whatever cost we must go forward or prove unworthy of the 
name we bear. 

When Garibaldi faced his little army in a great crisis in Italy and 
challenged them to an a'most impossible task, he said in substance, 
"I do not know what else you will get, but you will get hunger and 
cold and long marches and wounds and maybe defeat and death- 
Are you ready?" And the soldiers answered: "We are the men, we 
are the men." 

The Captain of our salvation calls today and it is a call to sacrifice 
and the emptying of self and the giving up of our coldness and 
neglect and arrogance and pride. It is a call to service and it leads 
over that bleak road the Master went. It may lead to surrendered 
wills in some dark Gethsemane, to the utter crucifixion of se'f on 
some pain-racked Calvary, but the call is not to death and defeat, 
but to glowing life and glorious victory for our cause and for our 
world. 

God give us the willing power in this day of consecration to cry 
out of our dedicated hearts, "We are the men. we are the men."

APPENDIX "C" 

REPORT OF THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY TO THE 
DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 



Right Reverend Father in God, 

and Members of the Diocesan Convention — 

It is with a deep sense of pride in the accomplishment of 
a consecrated body of women, and with a fresh realization 
of joy as a Co-Worker in the Master's Vineyard, that I 
present the report of the East Carolina Branch of the 
Woman's Auxiliary for 1932. 

The group is composed of working units of all sizes, the 
most outstanding is the smallest, two earnest active souls 
who prove by their example that "where two or three are 
gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of 
them." 

The departments were all active during the year, each 
one with an efficient chairman, who keot before the women 
of the Diocese the objectives and plans of her department. 
This was done by letters, by outlines and by visits ; and in 
some cases by articles in the Mission Herald. Each of 
these chairmen has given freely of her time and talents, in 
thought and study, and has shown how each Department 
can work in each of the Five Field's of Service. 

The Supply Department shows a decrease in money 
value, but this I feel sure is due to the decreased valuation 
of clothing and other sunolies. Only in a few instances 
have the Parish Grouns asked to be relie\ T ed of even a part 
of their Box Allotment. 

The Christian Social Service Department has been very 
active, with most encouraging resoonse from the parishes. 
The amount of community work shows a decided increase 
and much of this was in clothing and supplies for needy 
cases at home. This easilv balances the decrease in the 



72 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 



Report of Woman's Auxiliary May 



Supply Department. The Christian Social Service De- 
partment has ad'cled to its activities a much needed work 
among the isolated. This I trust will develop, as there are 
many isolated women in our Diocese. 

The Secretary and Treasurer have both rendered helpful 
and efficient service, and have responded willingly to every 
request made of them. The two Vice-Presidents have been 
active in the supervision of the work in both Convocations 
and have visited many parishes and Missions to help 
strengthen their local organizations. 

The United Thank Offering Custodian has been tireless in 
her efforts to give to each woman in the Diocese a renewed 
vision of the beauty and privilege of this great offering. Our 
ideal is to reach every woman in every Parish and Mission, 
for only in this way will we be able to increase the volume 
of our gifts, and so make possible a larger work through- 
out the world. 

Our Church Periodical Club Secretary shows a gain 
over the previous year of 425S magazines distributed. She 
is reaching many hungry souls with helpful reading matter. 
One outstanding piece of work done by this Agency was 
the gift from our women, of a much needed set of books, a 
Musical Dictionary to Miss Venetia Cox, for St. Hilda's 
School, Wuchang. 

The report of the Colored Convocation is an inspiration to 
each one who has read it. I wish 1 might present it as a 
whole. Through the leadership of their President they 
have gone steadily forward and have developed 'during the 
lean financial years an increased Spirituality and a broader 
vision of the advantages of the Educational Department. 

It is interesting here to pause for a moment and consider 
figures — which must hold our attention at times, though it 
is impossible to measure the breadth or depth of the work, 
or to compare its richness of meaning with dollars and 



FIFTIETH ANNUAL CONVENTION 73 

1933 Report of Woman's Anxiliary 

cents. There are 1692 women working' throughout the 
Diocese in some Parish organization. Grouped under the 
heading of the Five Fields of Service our financial report 
is as follows • 

Parish $ 5014.13 

Community 2779.85 

Diocese 3291.35 

Nation 290.16 

World 612.56 

$ 11988.05 

Box Work 1651.81 

U.T. 2253.01 

$ 15892.87 
Of this amount $3268.01 passed through our Diocesan 
Treasury as Apportionments and Special Gifts — The Bish- 
op's Fund amounting to $678.30. Included in this is also 
a contribution to the Advance Work, which our Diocese 
has not yet completed. 

Some of our Apportionments fell short a few dollars, 
$52.25 in all, but I trust that during the next year we may 
make up this difference. I feel that in spite of this there 
has been a wonderful spirit of Love and Service throughout 
the whole Diocese. For in all phases of our work we are 
striving for the ideal — every thought of every Churchwo- 
man every day. 

Early in the Spring the World Day of Prayer was ob- 
served throughout the Diocese. In a few of our Parishes 
an Offering was made on Good Friday for the work in 
Jerusalem. While this is not an Auxiliary Project it is an 
opportunity that we may share in, thereby deepening our 
understanding in the breadth and inclusiveness of our 
Church's Program and of our responsibility for the whole 
Program as Auxiliary to the whole Church. 

The Spring District Get-Together Meetings were very 



74 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 



Report of Woman's Auxiliary May 



helpful. These grottos, as the name implies, are active in 
the promotion of Fellowship and the development of 
Leadership. 

As the summer months approached ft was very gratify- 
ing to see that many Auxiliaries continued to meet regular- 
ly. Some of them gave this time to reading and study, 
some of them made garments for the Supply Room, and 
some worked on clothing for the Fall boxes for the chil- 
dren at Thompson Orphanage. 

Our summer Work for Camp Leach, and our Auxiliary 
Day there, have helped to draw us into closer touch with 
the Young People of the Diocese. As they are the future 
Church of the Diocese it is most essential that we have a 
mutual understanding and fellowship with them. Surely 
the Youth of today present a Challenge that we dare not 
fail to meet ! 

Through the activities and interest of our Student Work- 
er at East Carolina Teacher's College there has been formed 
there a Student Branch of the Woman's Auxiliary. To 
me this is one of the most important things that has been 
done during the year. Who can foretell the influence of 
those young women as they go out to take their places in 
various communities, trained not only as teachers in our 
schools, but as leaders in our Church? 

The Officers of the Woman's Auxiliary met at Camp 
Leach in August for a two days' Conference and there out- 
lined the year's Program, which is based on the Program 
of the whole Church.. We were represented by a number 
of women at Kanuga for Auxiliary Day there in July, 
though we had not a representative at any Adult Confer- 
ence. I trust this can never be said again of Bast Carolina. 

The President and two Vice-Presidents of the Woman's 
Auxiliary were privileged to attend a Clergy Conference 
held in Christ Church, New Bern, in the Fall. There we 
heard the plans outlined for the winter's work, and were 



FIFTIETH ANNUAL CONVENTION 75 

!f>33 llrport of Woman's Auxiliary 

better fitted to share in the carding out of these plans and 
hopes. 

The two Convocational Meetings in the Fall were splen- 
didly attended and were a great help and inspiration to all 
who were there. The Presidents of these two groups had 
planned most instructive programs and the work accom- 
plished during the year speaks for itself. 

We had four Delegates and several visitors at the Pro- 
vincial Meeting of the Woman's Auxiliary at Kanuga in 
September, and reported both Provincial and National 
obligations paid. 

In the Fall, when the Every Member Visitation was 
made, the women were asked to assist and were active in 
their efforts to make it a success. As an Auxiliary it is 
our privilege and our' aim to share in every Parish activity 
— but to be a well rounded Parish the men and women 
should, and must, work together. 

Someone has written that "sentiment is general that if 
the situation in the Diocese is made better, it must be done 
through the medium of the Auxiliary". In many places 
the women are already doing 80 or 90 per cent of the work; 
they have turned to Service when they lacked money, to 
Prayer when added home duties denied them a share in 
Parish activities. They are carrying on in a consecrated 
manner! 

Can we not catch the Vision — the real meaning of the 
Power of 1692 active women working side by side with 
1692 interested Laymen — with the Common Ideal to Study, 
Pray and Give for the extension of Christ's Kingdom. It 
would make of us an impelling Force, and would create in 
us such Hope and Joy that there would be no longer a 
struggle under a great burden — but with heads and hearts 
held high we would march "far down the future's broaden- 
in? way." Respectfully submitted, 

ANNA ROSE OUTLAND

REPORT OF BOARD OF MANAGERS OF THOMP- 
SON ORPHANAGE TO THE CONVENTION. 



The Thompson Orphanage is located geographically in 
the heart of Charlotte and affectionately in the heart of 
every Churchman who lives in our city. 

If you should drive in and around its grounds you would 
follow a paved road shaped like a horseshoe — a symbol of 
the good luck we feel is ours in having it in our midst. 

If at any time you find yourself despondent in the desert 
of depression and long for refreshment in an oasis of hope 
and joy then drive up into 'the grounds of the Thompson 
Orphanage when the children are at play and get out of 
your car and look at them a few moments. In short order 
they will surround you with such happy faces and cheerful 
greetings that you will realize you are in a bit of the shel- 
ter of the Rock of Ages and will feel a flush of refreshemnt 
come over your heart and soul. 

If you stay a little while they will soon learn your name 
so that when you return you will not feel yourself a stranger, 
but a friend in the sweetest kind of atmosphere— that of 
trust and devotion of a little child. 

There are 105 of them there almost equally divided be- 
tween the sexes — 50 boys and 55 girls. 

Twenty-three of them have neither father nor mother 
living; seventy-one have either father or mother living, 
while eleven have both parents but some of these latter are 
worse off than they would be if they were full orphans— the 
homes from which they were taken being so destitute of 
spiritual, moral and material help. 

From the Diocese of North Carolina there are 66 child- 
ren ; from East Carolina there are 24 ; and from Western 
North Carolina there are 15 in the Orphanage. 



88 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Report of Board of Managers of Thompson Or. May 

All who are old enough go to the public schools. Eleven 
are in the High School; twenty-two are in the Junior High : 
sixty-four are in the Grammar School and three are in the 
Kindergarten. 

During the past year ten children were placed as follows : 
4 with their father who married again. 
3 were taken by near relatives. 
1 was adopted legally, 

1 was sent to the Patterson School at Legerwood, N. C. 
1 was placed in a Church School on Long Island. 

Between January 1932 and January 1933 six were admit- 
ted to the Orphanage. 

There are several boys and girls who are finishing High 
School and need to be placed in work where they can earn 
a living. 

There are several other boys and girls who were ready 
for work last spring but who have been unable to find any 
work at all. 

The problem of placing boys and girls ready for work is 
indeed acute and baffles our ability to solve it. The most 
urgent appeal we make to you today is to help us solve 
this problem and find jobs for these boys and girls. The 
only home they have is the Orphanage and until they find 
work the Orphanage must take care of them. This means, 
as the Orphanage cannot enlarge its quarters, that we have 
to deny entrance to man} r little children who are constantly 
knocking at the door to be admitted, because there is "no 
room for them in the inn." Mr. Wheeler and Mr. Jack- 
son as well as the rest of us have had many a heart-ache 
because of this condition. 

Please help us to get jobs for these older ones — ready and 
restless to go to work. 

The personnel of the staff at the Orphanage consists of 
the Rev. W. H. Wheeler, Superintendent, Mr. Alexander S. 



FIFTIETH ANNUAL CONVENTION 89 



1933 Report of Bo:tr«l of Managers of Thompson Or. 



Bynum, Assistant Superintendent, Miss Nalle, Kindergar- 
ten teacher, six matrons and one nurse. 

This staff cared for 99 children the whole year or 36 234 
child days and 16 children for 2.918 child days and served 
117.456 meals from January 1932 to January 1933 

The health of these children was remarkably good, Dr. 
Myers Hunter, a member of the Board, and several other 
Charlotte physicians gave their services and by their vigi- 
lance and consecrated care succeeded in keeping all serious 
diseases away from the Orphanage domain and won a great 
success in their skirmishes with the lesser kind. 

All credit is due these noble doctors and we are happy 
to bear our witness to their interest in the welfare of child- 
ren and their service of love. 

Morally and spiritually, under the teaching and inspira- 
tion of the influence of Rev. Mr. Wheeler* the Thompson 
Orphanage is indeed an example. The standard is kept 
high and Ave find that they respond not because of com- 
pulsion, but because of real appreciation of and devotion 
to the principles they are taught. 

The Chapel in the Orohanage grounds is to them God's 
House and within its walls they feel the Sacred Presence. 

Service is held there for them regularly and in addition 
the older ones attend St. Peter's Parish Church Sunday 
School and they love to linger there after Church School is 
over to attend the Morning Service of worship in the 
Church. They follow the service and are reverent and 
attentive. They are taught the privilege of being support- 
ers of the Church and are given a small allowance each 
week that they might go to their worship with an offering. 
A number were baptized and eleven were confirmed in 
the Orphanage Chapel within the year. 

On the 63 acres of ground owned by the Orphanage there 
is a 20 acre farm, a dairy with 16 cows, 10 brick and 3 frame

building's. The Orphanage has its own Infirmary and 
Library and Gymnasium. 

It cost from January 1932 to January 1933, $26,672.98 
to finance all expenses. 

Of this amount it received $6,823.50 from its own endow- 
ment fund; $2,753.20 from the Duke endowment and the 
balance from the three Dioceses within the state and other 
sources. 

Due to the exceptionally fine management of Mr. Wheeler 
and Mr. Bynum, and to their and the matrons' willingness 
to serve on reduced salaries, all exnenses of the Orphanage 
were met in full and a small balance carried over into 1933. 

The Orphanage has an A-l rating for paying its debts. 

To keep it up to this standard it's not going to be fair to 
ask those in charge to make any more personal sacrifices of 
their too small salaries. Therefore it behooves every par- 
ish and misson to do their utmost to raise all funds pos- 
sible that the reduced budget for 1933 might be met in full. 
Respectfully submitted,

HISTORIC ADDRESS 
AT THE 50TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE DIO- 
CESE OF EAST CAROLINA 



By Major B. R. Huske 

Right Reverend Father in God; and Dearly be- 
loved Brethren of the Convention of the Diocese of 
East Carolina : 

I stand before yon this morning filled with pride 
and trembling. 

Here, one hundred and sixteen years ago the first 
convention of this church "in" North Carolina was 
held. 

Filled with pride and trembling, I stand today as 
we commemorate the Fiftieth Anniversary of the 
Diocese of East Carolina. 

I wish I had the art of the skillful housekeeper to 
make this historic food palatable to you, making the 
facts enticing, so they could be easily digested, an'd 
become an incentive to renewed zeal and devotion. 
There are some, who feel that our fathers were 
the torch bearers, who ''lead the procession" in their 
day and may, now be forgotten. 

This idea may be somewhat sustained by the 
words in St. Timothy (1 :l-4), "Beware of fables and 
endless °-enealogies, which minister questions rather 
than ^odly edifying' which is in faith". 

I think when we follow the lives of these men and 
women, on their life's journeys, touching the dreary 
and dismal road, as well as the "high spots"; go 
into the shadows of the valleys as well as absorb 
the view from the summit; we will not only admire 
them, but I trust be inspired to follow where they 



96 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 



Historic Address May 



have led and to endure and to serve as they. 

I think it well to spend a few minutes considering 
our first days, that we may the better understand 
the hardships of the way. 

We know something of the colonial days of the 
church — its trials, its sorrows, its failures, with here 
and there a glimpse of sunshine. 

The first .glimpse of our successful organization 
as the Diocese of North Carolina is the meeting of 
two Priests in Wilmington, seeking health by a 
change of climate. Rev. Bethel Jiidd of the Diocese 
of Connecticut and the Rev. A. Empie of the Diocese 
of New York. 

1817 

The first convention held "in" the State met in 
New Bern on April 24th, 1817. There were present 
three clergymen and six laymen. (The Reverends 
Bethel Judd, Fayetteville, J. Curtis Clay, New Bern, 
Adam Empie. Wilmington: Messrs. John Stanley, 
John S. West, New Bern. John Winslow, Fayette- 
ville. Josiah Collins, Jr., Edenton, John R. London 
and Marsden Campbell, Wilmington.) All of these 
signed the constitution passed at this meeting. Let 
us honor them as "signers". The constitution con- 
sisted of ten articles. Rev. Mr. Judd was elected 
President and Rev. Mr. Empie, Secretary. 

Standing Committee 

Reverends Judd, Clay and Empie and Messrs. 
Scott, Winslow. Campbell and John Blount were 
elected as the Standing Committee. 

The Rt. Rev. Richard Channing Moore, Bishop 
of Virginia, was invited to visit and perform Epis- 
copal offices in the Docese. 



FIFTIETH ANNUAL CONVENTION 97 

1933 Histor ic Address 

Delegates to General Convention 

Rev. Mr. Judd and Moses Jarvis were appointed 
delegates to the General Convention. 

Rectors were advised it was expedient to take 
annual collections for a Misionary in this State. It 
is of interest to note that on the next day (25th) the 
man to become the first Bishop was ordained Dea- 
con in Monumental Church, Richmond, Va. 
1818 

The second convention was held in St. John's 
Fayetteville, April 2nd, 1818.. There were present 
four clergvmen. three rectors and one visiting cler- 
gyman, Rev. John Phillips of Virginia. (Names of 
Clergy, Reverends Judd. Empie and Richard S. 
Mason, New Bern.) There were present six laymen, 
(John Winslow and John A. Cameron, Eayettevillle, 
Arm and J. DeRosset and Marsden Campbell, Wil- 
mington. John Collins, Eidenton, John W. Guion, 
New Bern.) 

This convention adopted three canons, had a re- 
port from the Committee on the state of the church, 
all printed along with its journal and that of the 
Convention of 1817, and also a constitution of the 
Missionary Society of the Protestant Episcopal 
Church in North Carolina, all of which took four- 
teen pages. 

A letter was presented by Rev. John Philips from 
Thomas H. Blount, prooosing (as I understand) 
to build a church in Washington.. The convention 
instructed a letter be sent Mr. Blount asking him 
to ''use h'is exertions" to erect an Episcopal church, 
permitting the people to understand that when the 
services of an Episcopal Clergyman cannot be ob- 
tained, the Vestry may have it in their power to 



98 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Historic Address May 

permit any preacher of sound principles and good 
moral character to officiate. I mention this that 
you may see the church had in those days a broader 
spirit than it was credited with, by those who dis- 
liked it because of former and supposed indissoluble 
connection with the English Church. See again 
at the Convention in 1820 held in Edenton, a resolu- 
tion was passed "That it be signified to the Clergy 
of different denominations who may be in Edenton, 
that the sittings are public", and "they are hereby 
invited to attend." 

On the contrary, Bishop Ives in his addresses 
mentions several times "violent and unprovoked at- 
tacks uDon the church". (Page 11 — J1842 Page 16 
— J1844. In another instance the Bishop says, "1 
learned that some of the members of the church 
had been made seriously to suffer in their rights as 
citizens, on the ground of their religious principles". 
The cause was attributed to our Misionar'ies, but 
the Bishoo says "Upon strict inquiry of unpredju- 
diced persons" I found nothing '"beyond fidelity in 
quietly setting forth the simple truths of the book of 
common prayer". ''Was chargeable against our 
clergy) (Page 10--J1849.) 

J 1822 P— 24 

At the convention, held in the Supreme Court 
Room. Raleigh in 1822, Resolutions were passed, 
"That the interest of the church in this diocese very 
much requires the residence and active service of a 
Bishop", and recommended to the next convention 
to proceed to the election of a Bishop for the diocese 
of North Carolina. The convention reported 17 
congregations. It might be of interest to you to 
compare this with the list of parishes and dates of 



FIFTIETH ANNUAL CONVENTION 99

their admission on pages 36 to 39, Journal 1877, 
and the statement of Bishop Atkinson in his 1876 
address (Page 38) when he says "We have but 
sixty clergymen in an area where the Church of 
England has about twenty thousand." 
1823 

The convention of 1823 held "in The Church" at 
Salisbury, elected as the first Bishop of North Caro- 
lina, Reverend John Stark Ravenscroft, Rector of 
St. James' Parish, Virginia (Mecklenburg County), 
the annual salary to be 4,750.00 per annum, exclusive 
of any salary to be paid him by Christ Church, 
Raleigh, of which he was to become the rector also. 

I should say of Bishop Ravenscroft : He was bold, 
forceful, humble and tender hearted. 

We are told that when he was crossing the ocean 
(at 18) ''The ship becoming entangled in icebergs, 
was saved by his venturing , hatchet in hand, with a 
companion out upon the bowsprit and cutting a part 
of it away." 

He was forceful, as his addresses, charges and 
sermons show. Take a sample of his f orcef nines s 
in his sermon "Communion of Saints." Do you 
long and even agonize that they may be added to the 

communion of Saints? Or are your children 

permitted to grow up like the Wild Ass' Colt, untu- 
tored in the knowledge of God, of themselves, and 
of the Lord Jesus Christ, though carefully furnished 
in the course of this present world." 

It is evident to us he wore himself out with his 
force. His invariable rule was to go to the place 
of his appointment, even when the weather was 
so severe that he did not take his servant, who 
acted as his sexton. If none were present he would 



100 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Historic Address May 

drive around the building to leave the signs that 
he had met his appointment. He was about forty- 
two when he entered the Ministry ; eight years 
later he was Bishop and in seven years he was 
dead, aged about fifty-seven. He died March 5, 
1830, and is buried beneath the chancel of Christ 
Church, Raleigh. 

1826— Hillsboro 

It would be profitable for all of us to read his 
charge to Clergy and laity at the convention of 1826. 
I think we wou'ld revere and stick more closely to 
the laws of the Church. 

Pause with me for this pen picture of our Rever- 
end Father in God who starts our ancestral line. 

I quote from an unfinished history of St. John's 
Church, written by my father, the late Joseph C. 
Huske. I can see, even now, in the depth of my 
mind, as a picture hallowed by time, the Bishop — 
Ravenscroft — standing- in the pulpit and towering, 
not only in the majesty of his natural form, but in 
the greatness of his strength, as an intellectual giant 
and Ambassador of God. 

And the Corona, as the Latins call it, the people 
listening in Circle around him with upturned faces 
and kindling eyes, to hear from his lips, in tremen- 
dous power the word of God. 

I can hear even now the words of the ten Com- 
mandments ringing in my ears, as he spoke them, 
as if indeed by the Authority of God." 

1831 

The Convention "holden" in the Supreme Court 
room at Raleigh in 1831 (May 19th), elected Rev. 
Levi Si'lliman Ives, 2nd Bishop of North Caro'lina. 



FIFTIETH ANNUAL CONVENTION 101 



Historic Address 



At the Joint Convention of the Dioceses of North 
Carolina and East Carolina, hdd in Tarboro in 1890 
in commemoration of the Centennial of the first 
meeting- held in North Carolina, in an effort to or- 
ganize the Church, Bishop Watson in his address 
"The First Three Bishops of North Carolina" said of 
Bishop Ives; "Few men have ever been more pop- 
ular and beloved than was Doctor Ives, as pastor of 
a congregation or for the first few years of his 
E >isco>nate. as Chief Pastor of the flock." 

Permit me to again quote from the Parish His- 
tory by my father : 

I have, too. in my mind the vivid scenes of a 
later day, when the Bishop — Ives, handsome in per- 
son and graceful in manner and solemn in aspect, 
stood forth amid the brilliant lights at night and 
preached the word in strains of winning eloquence, 
or laid his hands upon the heads of the people with 
inimitable gracefulness and solemnity. 

Who could ever forget him. as he appeared in 
his Episcopal robes, in the early days of his Episco- 
pate, when his ardent soul lit up his face with an 
almost divine glow, as he enforced the purity of 
Church doctrine, unmixed and unpalsied by the 
poison of Rome. 

When I became a man I knew him well, was the 
object of his kindness and love, was his pupil and 
had his confidence and though he destroyed my con- 
fidence in him in after time, I cannot even remember 
him without a sigh and a tear. The sweet remem- 
brance of what he once was shall cover his memory 
with the mantle of charity, as the grass and flowers 
cover the place where his body rests, "Sit in Pace". 

You will recall that in later life Bishop Ives per-

verted to Rome. If this tribute seems fulsome, you 
have but to view the portrait of Bishop Ives, per- 
forming the rite of confirmation, as it hangs in the 
hal! of St. Mary's School, (in Raleigh.) You will 
be able from this tribute to understand why, as I 
have heard, some thought my father and other 
young clergymen and Divinity students would fol- 
low him to Rome. Their allegiance to their Church 
however, was too deeply rooted to let any human 
undermine them. Only the Bishop's wife and one 
other woman followed Bishop Ives to Rome. The 
other woman soon renewed her allegiance to the 
Church. 

Perhaps no sadder convention was ever held than 
the one held in 1851, in Fayetteville, at which time 
Rev. Jarvis B. Buxton, Rector of St. John's died 
suddenly, and the convention had under considera- 
tion the errors of Bishop Ives. 

J 1853 

Perhaps no sadder letter is on record, than his 
letter to the convention written from Rome, Decem- 
ber 22, 1852, severing the ties as Chief Pastor. 
(Bishop Ives died October 1867.) 

1845 P— 17 

The Bishop's address in 1845 reports having re- 
ceived by transfer, among others, Rev. Robt. Drane 
from Kentucky, who became Rector of St. James', 
Wilmington, Rev. E. M. Forbes from Alabama, who 
became Rector at Elizabeth City, Rev. A. A. Wat- 
son, later elected Bishop and Rev. N. C. Hughes, 
missionary in Lenoir, Pitt and Beaufort Counties. 
Mr. Hughes later founded that fine Christian school

at Chocowinity which under him and his sons did 
such noble work for God and His Church, that 
school looked upon as one of the glories of our oast. 
He died n 1893 (May 20 ) and on his memorial page 
this statement is recorded "under his tuition four 
teen men were brought into the Christian ministry." 
And we still have that great institution St. Mary's 
School, which all through the years has been train- 
ing our fine daughters, the mothers of our race. 
God be with it and those who run it. How one's 
heart thrills when he reads of seven girls, all from 
one parish, at one time receiving the rites of confir- 
mation at the Bishop's visit to St. Mary's. 
As Bishop Cheshire said in his las* address: 
"We are proud of St. Mary's past and thankful 
for the good work it has been doing for the Church 
and for the community for ninety years. Thirty- 
five years asro the church owned not one foot of the 
ground <oi St. Mary's and had not one dollar of ma- 
terial interest in it." 

"With a ten thousand dollar legacy, from one of 
ray (Bishop Cheshire's) parishoners at Chapel Hill, 
the diocese of (then) North Carolina, entered upon 
the great venture of making St. Mary's School an 
institution to be owned and administered by the 
Church. As a concrete fact St. Mary's now rep- 
resents a value of over half a million dollars invest- 
ment." 

At the convention of 1853, the Rev. Thomas At- 
kinson, D D., was elected third Bishop of North 
Carolina, (apparently; on the first ballot. As 
there are some living who remember Bishop At- 
kinson (He died Jan. 4, 1881) I hasten on. My 
recollections of him are clear cut and imperishable.

]f I may do so and not seem irreverent, I will say 
that physically he was a "thing of beauty" and spir- 
itually the ''perfect man". 

I can see St. John's packed to its full capacity, 
even galleries and choir loft, and the people hanging 
upon his words in rapt attention, during sermons 
of one and a half hours in length. His addresses 
and charges and his wise course in handling the 
situation as to the uniting of the Church North and 
South, after the war, has made safe his reputation 
as a wise statesman as well as a good Bishop. I 
have heard he did not like children, a statement I 
have doubted. 

In those days When the Bishops made their visi- 
tations, the children were "spruced up" and sent 
to pay their respect to them. It is said that on one 
of Bishop Atkinson's visitations to St. John's (Fay- 
etteville) a lady said to him, "Bishop, I must show 
you my baby," and the Bishop solemnly replied, 
"Madam, I believe that is a pleasure you give me 
every year." 

1866 
In 1866 Bishop Atkinson spoke of failing health 
and proposed the election of an assistant or "Divi- 
sion," giving his consent to either plan. Many res- 
olutions were passed and many committees were 
appointed between 1866 and 1873, when Rev. Theo- 
dore B. Lyman, D. D., was elected Assistant Bish- 
op. 

1873 
In Bishop Atkinson's address (Page 28 — 1883), 
he says, "under these circumstances, it is abundant- 
ly clear that more Episcopal services are needed in 
this diocese than I, or perhaps any other man can

render." The convention then acted. 

On 34th ballot, Dr. Lyman received twenty-three 
clerical votes and the Bishop cast his vote for him, 
giving the 24 votes necessary to elect. The lay 
vote by parishes was 27 for confirmation and five 
against. On motion this vote was made unanimous. 

Bishop Lyman is well remembered by the older 
members of the convention. He was consecrated 
Assistant Bishop December 11, 1873 and died De- 
cember 13, 1893. 

He was a man of fine appearance, of great abili- 
ties which were broadened by travel. He resided in 
Rome from 1860 to 1870, and established the Ameri- 
can Chapel in the "Eternal City". His addresses 
and sermons show great ability. 

So much for our history in the Diocese from 
which we sorins;. T have quoted liberally from the 
first journals because I have been informed of their 
scarceness. Let us turn now to East Carolina. 

1825 P— 10 

Those who wish only an abstract "Relating to the 
Division of the Diocese of North Carolina," will 
find one in the Primary Journal of 1883, pages 
17 to 22, and in the Journal of 1884 they will find 
interesting statistics on pages 36 and 37. I will, 
however call your attention to the somewhat 
Prophetic statement in Bishoo Ravencroft's ad- 
dress in 1825 when he said "Dividing the diocese in- 
to three sections running from North to South, it 
is evident that the present strength of the Church is 
in the Eastern section. The principles of the 
church are there better understood, more heartily 
received and more unhesitatingly acted upon; and 
so far as human judgment is permitted 'to act there

is a greater degree of liveliness, a deeper interest 
manifested for the purity and consistency of faith 
and practice". 

He then takes up the other sections and tells us 
why the conditions were not so good 

We rejoice today that, these two other divisions 
have caught up with us, not because we have lagged 
but because of their energy in moving forward. 

J 1876 P— 29 

On May 23, 1875, this church (Christ Church. 
New Bern) was consecrated by Bishop Atkinson, 
it having been burned and rebuilt through the un- 
tiring and sacrificial efforts of the rector and 
citizens. 

1883 — See Bishop Lyman's Address 

In 1883 the Division came. Bishop Lyman was 
as reluctant as Bishop Atkinson to part with any of 
his diocese. But the Convention had pledged itself 
"to divide as soon as possible", before an Assistant 
Bishop had been elected 

The clerical vote for division was 42 for and 11 
against. The parishes voted 29 for division and 10 
against, divided 1. (The names of the voters are 
given on page 26 of the journal.) The matter 
of the line of division caused much debate before this 
convention, and after the vote to divide. There 
were natural causes that forced consent to the line 
we have and I may add it seems to be an Ecclesias- 
tical Gerrymander, using the term in its geographi- 
cal sense. 

Since the death of the lamented Rt. Rev. Junius 
M. Horner, D. D., it appears wise, as a matter of 
economical management, as well as for other rea- 
sons, to have two larger and stronger dioceses.

rather than three as now. 

Primary J 1883 P— 3 

The primary convention of East Carolina met in 
Christ Church, New Bern on December 12th, and 
13th, 1883. The convention was called by Bishop 
Lyman. After prayers the Bishop read the certi- 
ficate of consent (of General Convention) to the 
erection of a new diocese. 

At the opening- roll call there were present 21 
clergymen and 24 parishes. 

Rev. Dr. Watson was elected president of the 
convention and Rev. N. Harding, Secretary. Dr. 
A. J. DeRosset offered a preamble reciting the au- 
thority for a new diocese and a resolution "that the 
diocese shall be named and known as the Diocese of 
Wilmington." Dr. Huske offered an amendment to 
make the name "East Carolina." W. J. Griffin 
proposed to name it "Roanoke." A. H. VanBok- 
kelin "Albemarle." Col. Burr "Carolina. All 
amendments were voted down until that of Dr. 
Huske's was reached, which was approved and the 
resolution was passed naming the 'diocese "East 
Carolina." 

Bishop Lyman by resolution was requested to 
take charge of the diocese until the election and con- 
secration of a Bishop. 

At 8 P. M., motion of Dr. DeRosset to postpone 
the election of a Bishop to 11 o'clock the next day 
was lost, reconsidered and adopted. Feeling reso- 
lutions anent the separation from the diocese of 
North Carolina and the Bishop were passed. The 
Bishop made an address expressive of his feelings 
At 11 o'clock the next morning the Bishop (Lyman") 
appointed tellers for the Bishopric vote, who an-

nounced that 20 votes were cast all for Rev. A. A, 
Watson, D. D. (in the clerical order) and 25 votes 
were cast by the parishes, 18 for confirmation and 
7 against. Rev. Dr. Watson was declared elected. 
The Hon. F. D. Winston moved to make the election 
unanimous, which was done by a rising vote. The 
Bishop congratulated the convention 

Anyone familiar with the balloting, when Bishop 
Lyman was elected, would have expected this result. 
The only thing to deter the election of Bishop Wat- 
son was his age. He being 65 at the time. 

It was my good fortune to know Bishop Watson 
by association with him in my father's home, both 
as Doctor and Bishop Watson. 

Some thought him stern and hard, which I think 
was not the case, "firm" would better describe him. 
On these occasions under the influence of my fath- 
er's geniality and the operation of a mutual lov^ 
there was no place for hardness or sternness; and 
wit, wisdom and joviality flowed. There was a 
difference in their make up. My father's heart 
never grew old, his fatherly hand was ever held out 
to the young and he always encouraged the young 
men of the convention. 

Bishop Watson possessed geniality, but he was 
more reserved. He had a tender heart. I recall 
once he was at my sister's country home, where 
father died. There was a hue and cry of boys am 1 
dogs chasing a rabbit and my father .grave an en- 
couraging whoop to them and the Bishop said 
"Don't narson, how do we know the little rabbit has 
no soul?" When my father had passed through the 
gates and I had my own home, the Bishop was our 
guest during most of his visits to Fayetteville with

always a welcome from the head of the house to the 
baby and the cook too, whom he always went to see. 
I readily understand why he saw Bishop Ravens- 
croft as the apostle of force. Duty was his watch- 
word, obedience his creed. 

Keepng the law of God ever before him. preaching 
the observance of, and obedience to law, to his peo- 
ple, he laid down no rule that he did not strive to 

keep. 

J 1884 P— 22 

Col. W. L., DeRosset offered a resolution to 
change to "Council" instead of "Convention" wher- 
ever it occurs in the Constitution and Canons, which 
was referred to the Committee on Canons. 

The Parish of St. James' tendered to the diocese 
its one fourth intererst in the house and lot formerly 
occupied by Bishop Atkinson, as the Episcopal resi- 
dence, upon certain conditions, which were accept- 
ed. The diocese afterwards purchased the other 
'three fourths interest at a reasonable price. 
18S6 P— 68 

In 1886 Bishop Watson coming in from his visita- 
tions and much oppressed at the condition of a 
very poorly paid clergy, asked for half the children'^ 
Easter collections. This seems to be the beginning 
of the "Bishop's Fund." 

In 1886 the convention sent a telegram to the dio- 
cese of Maryland organized in 1783 with this sen- 
timent, "The youngest to the oldest." The acknow- 
ledgment came with this sentiment "A little one 

shall become a thousand." 

See Con. Art. 3. P— 29, 1891 

In 1887 the ''Convention" became "Council", the

change having become effective upon the adjourn- 
ment of the "Convention" of 1886. 

In bishop Watson's address of 1891 (Appendix 
A, P — 5) he tells of his trip abroad (July 8 to Nov. 
26, 1890) and of the investigation of the "Church 
Army" by him because of the interest that had been 
aroused in him on hearing of it before he left 
America. He confirmed nine of their members (at 
the request of their Chaplain and with the aoprova' 
of the Bishop of London.) He was evidently 
pleased at what he saw and he made this statement. 
"If I remember correctly their number Avas 22,000 
at this time." 

We know something of the fine work done in East 
Carolina by members of the Church Army. 

1893 

In 1893, the convention sermon was preached 
by my father. I am proud of the sermon and can 
recommend its perusal to all churchmen. When 
my father preached it he was, doubtless, the oldest 
Priest, by date of ordination, in the diocese. He 
had served forty-six years at the altars of the 
Church in the state and nearly all that time in the 
county in which he was born. He was within less 
than four years of his death and he spoke from his 
heart. He was ordained to the Priesthood on Oct- 
ober 8. 1848. The journals unfortunately give sev- 
eral dates. Like a golden thread his life runs 
through the tapestry which the Mother diocese and 
this diocese took fifty years to weave. Along with 
it run other threads of gold, some of which as time 
went on, took on the hue of purple, and with it too 
there are woven in the strong threads of fine linen 
and the soft and beautiful ones of silk — the laymen

and women of these dioceses who share in this tri- 
bute. The whole wrought into a thing of beauty 
which we may hang here today upon the walls of 
this church to revere and admire, and I hope imi- 
tate. Will you hear the words of the Mother dio- 
cese sent down when my father died? "The Church 
in North Carolina has been transferred from earth 
to oaradise. one of the choicest, purest, noblest, most 
loving and consecrated spirits ever found in the 
ranks of her clergy." 

Tie did not seek the honors of his church, but 
when it called him he did his best and the Church 
continued to call him. He appreciated its honors, 
1 know, and the diocese gave him every honor in its 
power — save that of the Bishopric. Many of his 
friends wanted him as Bishop, but I know he always 
discouraged them and that he preferred his life long 
friend Dr. Watson and advocated his election as 
Bishop. 

He was made a D. D. by the University (N. C) 
whereunon he wrote his strong and intimate friend 
Dr. K. P. Battle. President, "I do not see how Chap- 
el Hill could make a D. D. of me." Dr. Battle re- 
plied "The University is a powerful institution, it 
can make a D. D. out of very poor material." Pie en- 
joyed this joke as much as if it had been on the 
other fellow. He died on January 14, 1897, and 
was followed on December 9, 1897, by that honest 
and devout churchman. Dr. A. J. DeRosset, for 
many years Diocesan Treasurer, at the ripe age of 
ninety years (born October 6, 1807. They had 
long been called sweethearts.

"Many a thought is wedded unto them as hearts

sweet remembrances, I shall borrow from Bishop

could have a more loyal band of clergy than we 
have in East Carolina and I have not yet found 
the diocese with more loyal, zealous and lovable 
people than that splendid body of men and women 
who constitute the laity of East Carolina.." 
Special Council, October 7-8, 1903, »St. Stephens', 

Goldsboro. 

In October 1903, a special council met in Golds- 
boro upon the call of the Bishop and Standing Com- 
mittee, under date of August 21, 1903, for the pur- 
pose of election of a Bishop Co-adjutor. The Sec- 
retary read the Bishop's certificate of consent to the 
election of a Co-adjutor. The roll having been 
called, 21 clergymen and 69 delegates representing 
32 parishes were present. 

After a few ballots the Council adjourned until 
9 o'c'lock the next morning and at 11 o'clock the 
balloting was renewed and after several ballots, 
which resulted in no election, the council adjourned 
sine die. 



FIFTIETH ANNUAL CONVENTION 113 



1933 Historic Address 



1904 

In 1904 the Annual Council met in St. James', 
Wilmington, on May 25th to 27th. On motion the 
election of a Bishop Co-adjutor was made the order 
of the day at 11 o'clock Thursday. At that time 
balloting began and after a few ballots Rev. Robert 
Strange, D. D. was declared elected Bishop Co- 
adjutor. 

Robert Strange was dear to me as my own broth- 
ers, was clean in tongue as well as pure in heart, 
from his youth up. Manly and upright in the games 
as played and ever the "blessed" peacemaker, pour- 
ing the oil of gladness on the "rough seas" lashed to 
foam by angry boys. At his cheery command the 
"squall" would pass. I can see him. I can hear 
him, even now as he spent his summers with "we 
seven'.' and his other cousins at "Myrtle Hill," his 
grandfather's old home. Never do I remember his 
ever striking a false note or failing to influence for 
good his associates in boyhood, youth and manhood. 
1 believe herein lies the reason why he was elected 
Bishop. If I am not in grave error, the influence I 
tell you of, went through his college days and rolled 
up a long list of those who loved him because he first 
loved them. They wanted him for their leader 
knowing his ability and the power of his influence. 
When he was elected he was received by all as 
foreshadowed in the words of Bishop Watson in his 
letter of consent to the election of a Co-adjutor, who 
said, "Whomsoever it may be your pleasure to elect 
as my Co-adjutor, I will welcome as a brother in 
the apostleship and should I live to have the oppor- 
tunity will uphold with all my power." 

His Episcopate was short but he wrought well 



114 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA

with, may I say, high ability, consecration and de- 
votion and may I say, he fashioned a golden chain 
with links of love which reached from earth to the 
gates of Paradise and the angels of prayer ascended 
and descended like unto Jacob's dream ladder. And 
as his life preached peace so may he rest "in the 
peace of God which passeth all understanding." 

Bishop Strange was a popular preacher and was 
frequently called out of the diocese for special ser- 
mons and other work. Bishop Watson's first offi- 
cial act when he was elected Bishop, was the ordina- 
tion of Robert Strange to the Diaconate and the 
last recorded assent to the consecration of a Bishop 
in his memoranda, is that of Robert Strange. 

It may be of interest to you to know that Bishop 
Strange immersed a candidate for baptism in the 
Trent River (see his report J— 1909 P75.) That 
on April 13, 1876, Bishop Atkinson baptized a can- 
didate by immersion at Snow Hill. There are also 
two cases recorded in St. John's, Fayetteville. It 
would be interesting to know or other immersions 
by our clergy. 

1914—1915 

On October 8. 1914, Rev. Thomas Campbell 
Darst, was elected Bishop and duly consecrated 
on January 6. 1915. The Diocese had selected 
another apostle of love, and it was but a short 
period of time before he was known and beloved 
throughout his diocese and the love of his own flock 
spread, until he is now gladly Avelcomed by all the 
people of not only his own diocese, but by the peo- 
ple of the whole church. 

Letter Rev. W. R. Noe 4-26-33

work in his diocese, and also much work for the 
National Council. He was for years a member of 
the Field Department. He has been Chairman of 
the National Commission on Evangelism since its 
organizaton, and he led the Bishop's Crusade. He 
is sought as a preacher in every diocese. Four 
institutions of learning have confered upon him the 
title of Doctor of Divinity 'viz : The Theological 
Seminary. Aterandria, Va., The university of the 
South, Sewanee ; Roanoke College, Virginia and the 
University of North Carolina. ) 

1925 
Verily a Bishop's "job" is not an easy one, but we 
must not let it be a killing one, with 205 sermons 
and addresses reported (J 1925) in one year there 
seems to be a grave danger of allowing it to be so. 
The journal of 1925 shows the confirmation of 435. 
(Bishop's Address.) From the report of the state 
of the church in that year, we find that in the 10 
previous years there had been 3800 confirmations, 
otherwise added 1204, a total of 5004. Loss by re- 
movals 1723, by death 814. In the decade 1878 
names had been dropped. This loss is alarming to 
the Committee and is a leakage that is startling. Let 
us hope that those we have lost by removal or other- 
wise have proven good seed sown in other parts of 
the field. In view of this report, the gain of 475 
communicants seems remarkable. In this 10 year 
period the Bishop received 37 young men as postu- 
lants, admitted 37 candidates for Holy Orders, or- 
dained 27 priests and 27 deacons. This is nearly 
as many clergymen as were in the diocese at that 
time (33) and within one of the number reported 
in 1914 (28). 



116 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA

In the early days it is hard to estimate the number 
of communicants. 

In 1817, at the first convention 3 priests and G 
laymen were present. 

In 1831, at the beginning of Bishop Ive's adminis- 
tration, there were 10 clergy in all — 7 present, 24 
delegates elected and 11 in attendance and 489 com- 
municants reported. 

In 1853, Bishop Atkinson's administration, there 
were 37, total clergy, 30 present — 50 parishes, 41 
lay delegates attending, 181 elected and 1849 com- 
municants. 

In 1874 — Bishop Lyman's Assistant Bishop — 54 
total clergy, 78 parishes, 38 delegates, 3923 com- 
municants. 

In 1883, at the division of the diocese — 66 clergy, 
114 parishes, 5809 communicants. 

At this time there were 34 counties in which the 
church was not known. 

1883 

In 1883 when the diocese of East Carolina was 
organized there were only 5800 communicants in 
the entire state. The popoulation of this diocese 
at that time, consisted of whites 204,870, colored 
203,769, total 408,630. East Carolina had at that 
time 2, 485 communicants. 

Figures from letter 4-21-33, Bishop's Office 

The present population of East Carolina is 776, 
367 and the number of confirmed persons in the 
diocese as of January 1st, 1932 is 7,160. 

At the time of the division of the rest of the 
State which was at that time the diocese of North 



FIFTIETH ANNUALCONVEiNTTON 117 

1933 Historic Address 

Carolina, had a population of 991,361, and the total 
number of communicants in that diocese was 3,361, 
(These figures vary somewhat from those in the 
abstract in back of the Journal of the Primary 
1883, but not materially.) They show we have a 
greater number of communicants per thousand of 
population now than in 1883, and probably a great- 
er increase than the other dioceses. Certainly, 
however, not all we can and should do. 

The confirmations in East Carolina reported in 
last Journal, January 1931 to 1932 show 343, divi 
ded between 39 clergymen and show in round fig- 
ures, 9 candidates to each clergyman. In North 
Carolina May 1931, to May 1932, 595 confirmations 
with 62 clergymen or about 9 1-2 candidates to 
each clergyman In East Carolina only 46 colored 
confirmations against 98 in North Carolina. It is 
deeply to be regretted that the work among our 
colored brethren does not show greater results. 
Let us pray to the Lord of the Harvest and per- 
haps He will "strengthen us where we are weak" 
and establish us where we are right" — Amen. 
One year is not a fair test of a continuous work 
and we may take courage that the work among the 
colored is now growing satisfactory in our dio- 
cese, according to reports from headquarters. 

Five parishes in the diocese which for the past 
five years have shown an average of over 16 con-

St. Mary's, Kinston, 23; St. James, Belhaven, 
22: St. Cyprian, New Bern, 21; St. Paul's, Wil- 
mington, 19; St. Peter's, Washington, 18. 

Of those who have left all or the bulk of then- 
estate to the diocese or to institutions in which the 
diocese is financially interested, I recall Bishop 
Watson and Rev. Dr. Forbes. Of the laity Mr. J. 
Cooper Stedman of Fayetteville and Mrs. Chas. W. 
Elliott. The bequests of the last two materially 
helped the orphanage. I am of the opinion that if 
Vestries were more careful about the use of lega- 
cies the churches would be more frequently men- 
tioned in wills. 

Of the clergy on our roster at the birth of East 
Carolina, only.. five are now living: 

Rev. George W r . Dame, D. D., of Maryland, who 
was rector of St. Stephen's, Goldsboro in 18S3. 
Rev. Robert B. Drane, D. D., who served as rec- 
tor of St. Paul's, Edenton, for more than fifty years 
and has just lately retired. Rev. N. Colin Hughes, 
of the diocese of North Carolina, retired and now 
living at Hendersonville, N. C. Rev. Armand 
DeR. Meares, now residing in Baltimore. Rev. 
Henry S. McDuffey, who at the time of organiza- 
tion was a deacon in charge of St. Joseph's, Fay- 
etteville, retired now and living in Philadelphia. 

I have heard there were some ladies who were 
present at the primary convention, but as that was 
fifty years ago, I dare not call any names, for fear 
someone might add a few years to 50 and my 
doom would be sealed. But the woman's work in 
East Carolina should and does have the admiration 
and respect of all who are conversant with it. I

wish I were sufficiently informed to do it justice and 
had the time. I fear that our Bishop would have 
found this a slow church, hut for the untiring and 
devoted work of the ladies. 

Let us once more quote from another who knew 
them and resoected them. "We men, whether 
Priest or laymen, are obliged to feel the power of 
their influence, the faith that never flags and the 
zeal that never wearies and the spirit of self sac- 
rifice that never shrinks from the path of duty". 
(Parish history by Rev. Joseph C. Huske, D. D.) 

There were 66 laymen present at the Primary 
Convention. The following are still living: Judge 
Prank D. Winston, who represented St. Thomas, 
Windsor. Mr. N. W. Tavlor of St. Paul's, Beau- 
fort, who are present with us today. 

Few, if any, dioceses have the record of four 
men all of one familv croinsr into the Holy Minis- 
try, as has East Carolina, in the record of the Noe 
family. All four brothers doing fine work in the 
Ministry. Two of them now in this diocese. One 
nearing the celebration of twenty-five year's ser- 
vice in Ho'lv orders, much of the time as our Sec- 
retary and Treasurer. I am sure he has the prayers 
of all within the fold for long life and happiness. 

The Rev. Josenh Blount Cheshire, D. D., was the 
first native to be consecrated a Bishop in our 
church, having been elected Bishop Co-adjutor of 
North Carolina on June 28. 1893. and consecrated 
on October 15th. The deeree of Doctor of Divinity 
was conferre'd on him by the University of North 
Carolina, Trinity College, Hertford and the Uni- 
versity of the South, Sewanee. In his death in 
December last, the whole state has lost a lover and

a friend, (I cannot measure my personal loss). 
One wno was learnedly familiar with the State's 
history and knew the genealogy of its sons and 
daughters more perfectly, I believe, than any one 
now living. 

Like liishop Ravenscroft he was forceful and 
direct — like him he had the courage of his convic- 
tions. He was foursquare and upright, and 
scorned petty deceit. As a companion he was 
charming and interesting. He loved the Church 
and it is his debtor for the fine work he has done 
in preserving its early history in North Carolina. 
I think he knew he was nearing his end when he 
wrote his last address (Convention, May 1932.) 
In this he leaves to his people and all people this 
's dendid saying to think upon, "When we are 
tempted to lament our losses, let us turn away 
from that vexing thought, and exercise our minds 
in contemplating what we have left, AND 
THANK GOD FOR SO MUCH THAT WE 
HAVE NOT LOST." 

"BORAH" 

We stand today in the dark shadow of our own 
making, in a world with three hundred billion dol- 
lars of past due debts pressing us, with our guide 
book saying, "Owe no man anything, but to love 
one another." The "Gold Standard" reflects no 
light toward the leadened sky. Man's inhumanity 
to man makes countless thousands mourn. The 
Standard of the Prince of Peace alone gives light 
through the clouds. How long will men crucify 
their best friend? We stand at the open door of a . 
revolution! May it be guided by the wisdom of 
our Christian leaders and statesmen into the paths 
of peace that leads to service and to happiness. 



FIFTIETH ANNUAL CONVENTION 121 

1933 Historic Address 

Thank God we have not lost our Church. Thank 
God for our Apostles of love and the bond of fel- 
lowship. Let us rally to our country and to our 
wise leaders, demanding that the Church be not 
robbed of her tithes, by oppressive prior taxes for 
useless, ephemereal or unnecessary material things. 
God grant it all. 

It has been my good fortune, for several years, 
to live beside the sea in the summer, and to think 
of the Great Creator, who holds the rolling deep 
in the hollow of His hand, and controls its wander- 
ings with his "thus far sha'lt thou go." To see the 
children at play with shells upon the sands, to see 
the sun warm them to a glow and to see Nature 
kiss them with her briny lips and bring them, some- 
times, from the brink of the grave. And when 
night has drawn her curtains, to stand and see 
them stretched upon their cots, sleeping as children 
do, when kissed by the angels who guard them 
while they sleep. To join with the tired mothers 
and anxious fathers in a prayer of thanksgiving 
for God's mercies to them ; Then I was wont to 
go and gaze upon that vast and restless wonder, 
the moon perhaps peeping upon the horizon and 
making a path of gold from thence to the shore. 

Now children are asleep and lovers have had 
their farewell kiss, and the mantle of night is 
drawn closer, the great milky way stretching 
nortlrward and southward, lit by myriads of stars, 
and silence reigns save for the crickets drone and 
the cry of a night bird now and then. Then would 
I look up and find the dipper with the seven great 
stars revolving in their mighty orbit, with ever the 
pointers directing my gaze to the great Northern

Star, "of whose true, fixed and resting quality 
there is no fellow in the firmament." Now when 
I view these lights of heaven in the Milky Way, I 
shall think they are the shining souls of our Sainted 
ones clad in their white robes, and the "dipper" 
shall be to 'me the seven stars of our own "Ursa 
Major." 

Revenscroft, Ives, xA-tkinson, Lyman, Watson, 
Strange, Darst — directing us always to Him "the 
same yesterday today and forever." 

Thus sayeth the Lord, stand ye in the ways 
and see and ask, for the old paths, where is the 
good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest 
for vour souls. — Jeremiah 6 : 16.

The. Rev, W. R. Noe, Treasurer of the Diocese, presented 
his report, which was referred to the Department of Finance. 
(See Appendix "B") 

Mr. H. E. Rodgers, for the Committee on Canons, made 
a report as follows: 

REPORT OP COMMITTEE ON CANONS TO THE ANNUAL CONVEN- 
TION OP THE DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA. 

The committee on revision of canons of this diocese makes the 
following- report: 

1. A careful study of the canons show them to be drawn up in 
proper and fitting language plainly expressing the purposes for 
which they were promulgated. 

One change is suggested for the Convention's consideration and 
action. 

Canon 24 provides for the adoption of the Church Pension Fund, 
but sets forth no administrative procedure to carry out the sysr 
tern, except in Canon 9, under Section 1, The Executive Council, 
paragraph 2, gives said Executive Council the authority to exercise 
all powers of the Diocesan Convention between meetings thereof 
in connection with The Church Pension Fund. This authority is 
granted without any definite or controlling method of operation, 
giving the said Council plenary power. 

The Church Pens-ion Fund system was originated under prin- 
ciples adopted by the General Convention of 1913 and was incor- 
porated under Chapter 97 of the Laws of New York of 1914 and is 
a business and financial organization handling and dispensing large 
sums of money from and through each diocese throughout the 
general Church and should have definite and responsible agents in 
each diocese to attend to the great amount of detailed work en- 
countered in forwarding the purpose of this pension system. 

The canon of the General Convention covering The Church 
Pension Fund in paragraph 3 gives authority to each diocese, in the 
following language "and to institute throughout the Church and in 
accordance with the canons of the several dioceses" to establish a 
definite plan of operation in carrying out the purposes of the pen- 
sion fund system. 

We feel that an Executive Council cannot properly and ef- 
ficiently carry out ,. the duties demanded. That there should be a 
standing committee in control with a treasurer of that committee

Report of Committer on Canons May 



who can keep in constant contact with the work and each parish 
In *he collection and forwarding of assessments to the corporation, 
ejs agent of said corporation. 

We suggest that the following words, "and the Pension Fund-' 
appearing after the word "Service" and before the semi-colon in 
paragraph 2 of Section 1 in Canon 9 referring to The Executive 
Council be stricken out and that there be incorporated in Canon 
24, the following, which is a. restoration of the canon on The Church 
Pension Fund as it existed in 1918. 

The Canon proposed by the Committee is the same as Canon 26 
in the Canons of 1918. (See 1918 Journal) 

Your committee has made a study of the following resolution 
submitted by Mr, John R. Tolar at the last convention; — "Resolved: 
That that portion of the Diocesan Budget relating to Bishop's salary 
and expenses be eliminated from the Budget beginning May 1934, 
and handled on an assessment basis, in keeping with the practice 
of every other diocese in the United States." 

Your committee feels that any canon to be drafted and suggested 
for consideration should deal with and cover the entire Diocesan 
Budget and not be of a fragmentary nature in only touching one 
or two items of said Budget as offered by this resolution. The 
resolution is too limited in scope and is fragmentary. The present 
method of securing funds for the Diocesan Budget functions satis- 
factorily and any assessment plan would require a fixed and defi- 
nite rate based upon the number of communicants in each parish 
or some other ratio which is an unsatisfactory plan under the 
present disturbed financial atmosphere. 

Your committee welcomes any resolution or suggestions on 
treating the entire Diocesan Budget on an assessment basis as a 
parish obligation.

Mr. W. B. Campbell, for the Committee on the State of 
the Church, made a report, as follows: 

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON THE STATE OF THE CHURCH, 
MADE TO THE FIFTY-FIRST DIOCESAN CONVENTION 

The Committee begs leave to submit its report upon the stat^ 
of the Church, as follows: 

In preparing its report for the past year the Committee hias 
sought to deal with and report upon the state of the Church, and it 
several activities, by reference and summary, rather than setting 
out with particularity statistical details. 

Confirmations 
During the past year the Bishop confirmed 421 persons. With 
the exception of one year, this is the largest number of confirma- 
tions over a period of many years. Confirmations during 1933 ex- 
ceeded confirmations for 1930 by approximately 24 per cent. During 
the period of 1926 to 1928, inclusive, being three of the years com- 
monly known as good years, or normal years, the average confirma- 
tions were 306. During the period of 1931 to 1933, inclusive, being 
three years which we know as depression years, or during Which 
period we have been going through economic stress, the average 
confirmations were 405, an increase of an average of 99 during the 
three unsettled years over the three years— 1926 to 1928, inclusive. 

Religious Education 

During the year the work of the Department of Religious 
Education has been good. Camps for the children and the young 
people of the Church have been operated and maintained in a satis- 
factory and helpful manner. The trained workers ih Religious 
education and the Counsellors for the work carried on by the Young 
People's Service Leagues have given much time to the growth of 
the work of the Young People— in the distribution of literature 
and information; in supporting and supervising the work, and in 
most of the Parishes and Missions Service Leagues are established, 
and during the past year several Junior Leagues have been estab- 
lished for the Junior Young Peopleis Work. 

Church Schools 

There was no growth In attendance or membership in th* Church 



30 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 



Report of Committee o n State of the Church May 

Schools during- the past year. The Work in several of the Church 
Schools in the Mission Field have ceased and the effort to- operate 
such Church Schools has been abandoned. This condition calls for 
a new enthusiasm and determination on the part of the member- 
ship of the Church, particularly more interest on the part of the 
adult membership who are willing" to give part of their time to the 
Young- People in the Church School. 

The Work of the Women of the Church 
All of the organizations of women are doing good work in the 
three convocations. The women of the Church in their several 
organizations are making diligent effort to perform the duties com- 
mitted to them and to succeed in the work they are undertaking. 

Men's Work 

The men of the Church need to be aroused. There are few 
active Brotherhood Chapters; there are too many inactive Chapters. 
There are too few Men's Clubs. The men of the Church need defi- 
nite organization and a greater number of men enlisted and avail- 
able to carry out many special activities which are the logical re- 
sponsibilities of the men of the Church. 

Rural Work 

The Diocese of East Carolina needs a comprehensive, definite 
program for rural work. It is a rural Diocese, We have com- 
municants to the number of 6,836. The boundaries of the Diocese 
include a total population of approximately one million persons. 
These figures illustrate the need for an adequate rural program, 
and the need for a determination sufficiently strong- for the Church 
to reach and serve a much greater proportion within this field of 
Diocesan activity. 

Publicity — Church Literature 
Only a few of the people of the Church subscribe to National 
or g-eneral church papers arid literature. The printed message of 
encouragement and information goes directly into the homes of 
only about one-third of the Church membership. The Mission Her- 
ald printed and supported by the Diocese is subscribed to by about 
one-third of the membership. The cost per month to furnish The 
Mission Herald to one-third of the homes amounts to $70.(X0< per 
month. For an additional cost of $60.00 per month, it can be placed 
in every home. It has been proposed by the Woman's Auxiliary 
that the additional mentioned amount needed to insure circulation 
cost be Included in the Parish Budget. If this proposal receives 
the consideration it deserves and is put into effect, it will require 
the help and support of the members of the Vestries of the Parishes 
and Missions. 

The Clergy 
During the year five Clergy left the Diocese. Three came into 
the Diocese. In June three Clergymen will finish their work in 
the.. Seminary and be ready, to enter the work in the Diocese

1 Financial 
The deficit of the General Church for 1933 amounts to $500,000.00. 
Pledges for the work of the General Church for 1934 are $500,000.00 
less than the needs of the General Church to enable it to carry on 
its present work. 

East Carolina paid all that it promised to the General Church 
for 1933, and at the end of our fiscal year, April 30th, the Diocese 
had paid for 1934 more than it had promised. 

A movement has already been inaugurated in the Diocese to raise 
the 1933 deficit to enable the General Convention, which meets in 
October, to balance its budget. The movement t© raise our part 
of the deficit shows every indication of success, as many of the 
men of the Diocese are undertaking with enthusiasm to raise our part

From investments and special contributions .... 4,500.00

From Parishes and Missions 29,699.89 

Received 26,532.43 

Total Expectations $38,303.89 

Total Receipts $35,611.93 

The expectations for the fiscal year, beginning May 1, 1934, were 
about $2,000.00 less than budget requirements, and unless this bal- 
ance at least is supplied either a portion of the work will have to 
be abandoned or the debt of the Diocese increased. 

During- the period of the last four years, which we know as the 
depression years, the Diocesan Budget has been reduced forty per 
cent. On the whole, this reduction is at least as much, if not greater 
than has been the change in business conditions or the income of 
the people, and the reduction illustrates that the Church has not 
sought to maintain excessive budgets or place upon its people an 
undue financial bUTden. 

There is no room for further curtailments In the stipend of 
the Missionary Clergy. They are all receiving small salaries, in 
fact, too small for their proper support and all now serving the 
field are required if the Church performs the task committed to it. 

A study of the expenditures discloses that a comparatively 
small part of the budget goes to administrative costs and that the 
amounts allotted to administration are reasonable and necessary. 

The only items in the administrative budget which are not ab- 
solutely essential are those providing a salary of $2,400.00 for the 
Executive Secretary; $1,200.00 for the Secratary of the Diocesan of- 
fice, and the additional sum of about $300.00 for maintenance of the 
Diocesan office. Since the Executive Secretary spends more than 
one-half of his time in serving Parishes and Missions and the 
holding and conducting of necessary services, and if not done no 
services would be held in such charges, at least one-half of the 
salary of the Executive Secretary in fact and in fairness should be 
charged to the Mission work in the Diocese. 



32 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 



Report of Committee on State of the Cfcnrefc May 

During- the past year, the having of a central Diocesan office 
and the services of an Executive Secretary, the Diocese has, in the 
handling of several specific important matters, saved more than 
the cost of operation of the office including the Executive Secretary's 
salary- — such as the obtaining of settlement of the General Church 
note held against the Diocese — adjusting and settling of claims in 
restricted banks: — obtaining credit for balances in restricted banks 
o-n Church Pension remittances and in the handling of the accounts 
of the Trustees of the Diocese. 

The Diocesan debt at this time is $19,320.00. A portion of this 
was borrowed from the Trustees. This is not a borrowing from 
ourselves. Bach item is handled with the Trustees as it would be 
with a bank. The Trustees are given and hold collateral securities 
for each borrowing when made. Borrowing in this manner is a 
mutual help to the Diocese and the Trustees, in that it affords the 
Diocese a source to borrow, and the Trustees a field to lend, which 
loans can be made at a greater rate of interest than could be ob- 
tained upon the usual investment. The credit of the Diocese has 
been preserved during the period of depression and it can borrow 
money at any time from the banks of Wilmington with which it 
has for years done business. 

Some of the Problems of the Diocese 

Of the niinety-five Parishes and Missions, only fourteen are 
self-sustaining. Some of the self-supporting Parishes are not strong 
enough financially to make large contributions to the necessary 
work of the whole. 

With a large number of Parishes and Missions receiving aid 
from the Diocesie makes it difficult to raise ample funds for ade- 
quate missionary work. Since the Diocese does not enjoy a large 
income from special funds, it can only look to its Parishes and 
Missions for contributions in such amount as will pay reasonably 
adequate salary for the Missionary Clergy and administration costs 
of the Diocese. 

Several self-sustaining Parishes, during recent years, entered 
upon large building programs and supplied themselves with physical 
equipment much more adequate and suitable to carry on the work. 
The qreating of building fund debts on account of this building 
program, -when followed by several years of depression, has created 
too heavy financial responsibility under existing conditions, and 
wherever possible, some definite effort should be made to relieve 
the Parishes over-burdened with building debts from that burden. 

In spite of all of the difficulties and barriers, East Carolina 
has done well and better than some of the other Dioceses. 
Some Special Needs 

A larger membership in the self-supporting, as well as aided 
Parishes and Missions, and a larger percentage of contributors in 
such Parishes and Missions, which is a need that can be supplied 
if the present membership realizes fully its responsibility and grasps 
its wide opportunity — first, to support the existing work; and sec- 
ondly, to assist in the bringing in of a larger membership to carry 
on, as well, a larger work. 



FIFTY-FIRST ANNUAL CONVENTION 33

A larger number of aided Parishes to become self-supporting. 
Some of the aided fields now have as many communicants as some 
of the self-supporting Parishes. 

Let us try to reach a larger part of the million people within 
the Diocese. 

Let us have sufficient courage to carry forward the work of 
the Church. 

Let us arouse the unused powers of the men in the Church. 

Let us realize more fully the great sacrifice that has been made 
in our behalf. 

Let us give to the Church some of the quality of service we 
give to business and material affairs. 

Let us determine to give to the Church and its work such of 
our time as that work requires, and that part of our means — the 
first fruits. — that is the rightful share to be contributed, for the 
carrying on of the mission committed to the Church, through us, 
Who are professing Christians and claimants to membership therein 
and to the unspeakable joys of life eternal.

The Committee on the State of the Church, 
By W. B. CAMPBELL 

Mr. John R. Tolar, for the Department of Finance, made 
a report, as follows : 

REPORT OP THE DEPARTMENT OF FINANCE 

For the past several years, we have been struggling to adjust our 
budget to our receipts and each year, in spite of reduced appropria- 
tions, we have wound up with a deficit because the expectations from 
Parishes and Missions have not been realized. The year just closed 
has been no exception. Last year's budget was based on expectations 
of $29,699.89 and receipts from this source were $26,532.42 

EXPECTANCIES — 1934-1985. 

General Church: $3,401.00 

Other Sources 4,000.00

DISBURSEMENTS : 

To The General Church $ «,829.69 

Provincial Synod 150.00: 

General Convention Assessment . 210.00 $ 7,189.69 

There were some encouraging features. Thirty-nine Parishes and 
Missions paid their pledges in full. Fifty-five increased their pay- 
ments aver the previous year, but twenty paid less than pledged. The 
amount of decrease by the twenty more than offset the increase by 
the fifty-five, so the total receipts for the year were One Thousand 
Dollars less than the previous year. 

It is the opinion of the Department that we have reached the point

Where it is impossible to further curtail expenditures and even, at- 
tempt to do the work which we are now doing and if the Diocese is 
to have any healthy growth, we should do more; Our problem, there- 
fore, is not to further decrease our budget, but to find ways and means 
to increase our income. Further, the debt of the Diocese of practi- 
cally $20,000 cannot be left in its present state. The Department 
recommends that this debt be funded, to be paid over a period of ten 
years; that the Treasurer be instructed to set aside at the beginning 
of each month a sinking fund to equal $2,000 for the year and that 
this fund be a first call on all receipts. .:

1934 Rcsolnfioito 



The expectancies recorded from the General Church and other 
sources are accurate. Expectations from Parishes and Missions 
are not, as we have not received sufficient data from them to make 
an accurate estimate. It is the opinion of the Department, however, 
that the figures used represent what we can fairly expect. We base 
them on the receipts we have had for three years, which were 
as follows: 

1932 $26,259.91 
1933 ■ • •• - 27,586.36 , 
1934 . . 26,532.43 

The appropriations noted for the Diocesan Missionaries and 
Aided Parishes are based on appropriations actually expended this 
year, it is the opinion of the Department that these stipends iri some 
cases must be rearranged,, the reductions being made in fields that 
are showing no progress and perhaps increase where these seem 
justified. ,, , , . . • • ■• 

The Rev. Alexander Miller, after presenting a statement 
showing the standing df the several parishes and missions 
in their contributions for Diocesan and General Church 
Work as compared with their current expenses, offered 
a resolution, as follows : 

"Resolved: That the Parishes and Missions of the Diocese es- 
tablish as a goal an apportionment equal to 100 per cent' of their re- 
ported current expenses; and accept as a minimum responsibility an 
apportionment equal to 50 per cent of the reported current expen-.. 
ses; and that the parish and mission not paying an apportionment 
equal to 50 per cent endeavor to reach this standard of giving Within 
the next three years." , 

Rev. W. H. Milton, D. D. moved that the apportionments 
be worked out if possible on a basis that will be fair and 
equitable. c> 

After much discussion the report of the Department of 
Finance and the resolutions of Rev. Alexander Miller and. 
Rev. W. H. Milton, D. D. were referred to the Executive 
Council and the Executive Council was given power to 
prepare a Budget and to determine the amount of money 
needed from the parishes and missions for eight -months, 
May 1st to December 31st, 1934. 

A resolution from the Executive Council, recommending

Your committee met with a sub-committee of the Finance De-

meeting with the Finance Committee in September. Your committee 
undertook the collection of these various items. We started in Sep- 
tember and sent out bills, writing letters and following up our 
bills and letters each ten days until we had written in excess of 150 
letters. In some instances we wrote to certain persons as many as 
seven letters, sending at times self addressed stamped envelopes, but 
we received no acknowledgements at all. 

The total cost of the insurance handled by your committee 
amounted to $548.25 for a term of three years. The net imount paid 
by the Diocese on account , of this protection was :$1-T&.1JK

third of this insurance is due each year, therefore, there will be 
another policy due on August 1, 1934 and if this same committee is 
•to continue to endeavor to serve the Diocese, we earnestly ask your 
hearty cooperation in the handling of these matters. It is extremely

North Carolina, and to appoint a committee to represent this Diocese 
in any further conferences that may be had with representatives of 
tb.6 Diocese of North Carolina." 

Mr. P. H. Kasey offered the following resolution, which 
was adopted and then referred to the Executive Council

curred, or may occur in the future. Should any surplus occur after 
paying off in full any deficit, at any time, it shall be placed to the 
-redit of East Carolina Episcopal Foundation. This annual con- 
tribution to be made on the first Sunday of each year, or as near

APPENDIX "A' 



BISHOP'S ADDRESS 



THfc BISHOP'S ANNUAL ADDRESS 



Brethren of the Clergy and Laity 

of the Diocese of East Carolina: 

"Grace be unto you, and peace from God our Father^ 

and from the Lord Jesus Christ." 

Fifty years ago today the first Annual Convention 
of the Diocese of East Carolina was in session in this 
Parish. Under the guidance of its newly Conse- 
crated Bishop, it had made wise and careful plans 
for the extension of the Church within its borders. 
The Committee on the State of the Church reported 
that there were thirteen Priests and eight Deacons 
entitled to seats in the Convention, and that the new 
Diocese had within its borders fifty-two parishes 
and Mission stations, with a total Communicant 
strength of 2463 persons, and total contributions to 
all purposes of thirty thousand dollars. 

In the closing words of Bishop Watson's address 
to that Convention, he said : ''Sirs, we are brethren. 
Let us work together, not apart. Let us pull togeth- 
er, and not apart. We believe we have the strength 
to be self-supporting. Upon that plea we sought 
division. We have obtained what we sought. But 
the new Diocese will not take care of itself. Its sons 

must take icare of it We must see to it 

that the assessments are honestly paid, and that all 
our contributions are in honest proportion to our 

means We must work, and work together. 

We must give, and give together. So working and 
so giving, so living and working in brotherly love 
and sympathy, we may reasonably expect to justify 
to the Church at large our action in organizing this, 
our new family of East Carolina". 



50 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Bishop's Annual Address May 

These stirring words come to us with freshness 
and vigor after half a hundred years, for they were 
not uttered for a day or a period off time, 'but they 
voice the spirit that has animated the Church in all 
periods of its history. 

We may admit with gratitude that the action of 
our fathers in organizing this Diocese fifty years 
ago has been justified by results, for East Carolina, 
while weak in numerical and financial strength, has 
been able to contribute something fine and construc- 
tive to the life of the General Church, and has with 
loyalty and courage played its small, but not unim- 
portant, part in the extension of Christ's Kingdom 
throughout the world. 

With this background in mind, we enter upon 
this Convention today, thanking God for our heri- 
tage and beseeching Him to make us worthy of the 
glorious task committed to our hands. 

My earnest prayer has been that this Convention 
may be a convention with a purpose, and that pur- 
pose can mean nothing less than the determination 
on the part of every one of us to learn God's will 
for this Diocese, made up of Clergy and Laity and 
parishes and missions, whose sole purpose is to 
strive for the coming of that day when His will shall 
be supreme in the lives of men. 

Our first step, it seems to me, is to review the 
situation, to take stock of our resources, to deter- 
mine if our line is holding firm, and if the Church 
in East Carolina is really functioning as the blessed 
Body of Christ in human society. 

It is not enough for us to point with pride to our 
growth, to show that we have double the number of 
Clergy and three times the number of Communicants 



FIFTY-FIRST ANNUAL CONVENTION 



1934 Bishop's Animal Address 



and four times the amount of money contributed, 
unless we can show that Christ is being exalted by 
our Clergy, and His cause is being advanced by 
devoted and loyal Communicants, and that our in- 
creased contributions represent the sacrificial giving 
of a people glad to do God's will. 

In making review of the Diocese, I mention first; 

The Negro Work 

Our Colored work, made up of seventeen parishes 
and missions in twelve counties, administered by 
six Clergymen, numbers eight hundred and fifty 
Communicants. The work has gone forward well — 
in comparison with other Southern Dioceses, very 
well — but it is the growing opinion of many who 
are genuinely interested in the work that it has been 
entirely too dependent upon mission funds, and in 
some cases, little desire has been shown for a larger 
measure of self-support. 

The time has come when we 'must make a more 
careful evaluation of that work, not for the purpose 
of crippling the splendid work that is being done in 
many places, but in order to determine the value 
of the whole present program and then concentrate 
our greatly reduced resources on points where there 
are signs of vigorous life and development. 

This possible readjustment of our Colored work 
has been forced upon us by the repeated and drastic 
reductions in the missionary funds appropriated by 
the National Council for the Negro work in East 
Carolina, and we now find it impossible to main- 
tain this work on the basis of past years without 
laying an additional heavy burden upon our sadly 
depleted Diocesan funds. 

I would suggest the appointment of a committee 



52 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Bishop's Animal Address May 

made up of sympathetic missionary minded men and 
women of both races to take the whole matter under 
careful consideration and to report their findings 
at the Fall meeting of the Executive Council. 

The work is dear to my heart, and in many of 
our parishes and missions it is being carried on with 
zeal and energy and with remarkable results, but 
in other places it is sadly in need of renewal and 
recovery, and if the whole line is to advance, the 
struggling groups must be strengthened or allowed 
to drop out.

Another problem that has become increasingly 
acute, due to the failure of many of our parishes 
and missions to bear their share of our Diocesan 
program, has to do with the maintenance of our 
so-called Aided Parishes. We have in East Caro- 
lina at this time thirty congregations with all the 
rights and privileges of parishes that are receiving 
aid from the missionary funds of the Diocese, and 
depending upon that aid to pay a part of the salary 
of the Clergyman serving the Parish. Many of 
those congregations should not have been admitted 
as parishes, as they have never been self-supporting 
units ; in fact, more than thirty of the parishes mak- 
ing up the Diocese of East Carolina fifty years ago 
received aid from mission funds at that time and 
still receive such aid. 

I think I am correct in stating that East Carolina 
is appropriating a larger sum to Aided Parishes 
within its borders than any other Diocese in the 
South today, and for that reason is able to do little 
or nothing for purely missionary work in the terri- 
tory for which, under God, we are responsible, 



FIFTY-FIRST ANNUAL CONVENTION 53 



Bishop's Annual Address 



It is quite obvious that many of these small, weak 
parishes cannot assume the full support of a resident 
Clergyman, but I believe it is possible in nearly 
every case for the congregation to pay for their 
part of the Clergyman's time, and that certain com- 
binations may be arranged that will enable groups 
of Aided Parishes, served by one Clergyman, to 
become self-supporting fields. Some such plan 
must be worked out if we are to maintain our pres- 
ent missionary program, and I ask for your serious 
consideration of this matter. 

It was beautifully demonstrated that an aided 
parish can become self-supporting when a parish 
that had been expecting and receiving Diocesan aid 
for seventy-five years became a self-supporting, 
missionary minded force in the very midst of the 
depression because the people of that parish had 
been aroused to a sense of their responsibility as 
living members of the Church of the Living God. 

I want East Carolina to become more self reliant, 
because I know that our Parish and Diocesan life 
will grow to mean immeasurably more to us if we 
will only put more of ourselves and our means in 
the strengthening of the Church of which we are 
members and which we profess to serve. 

I want our aided parishes to assume self-support, 
not only because of the new interest that such a 
step will arouse in the members of the parish, but 
in order that our missionary gifts may go to the 
neglected places where sinning, lonely, discouraged 
people have been waiting through the years for us 
to come. 

I want East Carolina to so take care of her own 
needs that the day may come when in the spirit of 



54 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 



Bishop's Annual Address May 



Him Who gave all in order that all might find life, 
this Diocese may bear a real part in the extension 
of His Kingdom in all the world. 

Surely, the purpose of God for our Diocese will 
never be perfectly fulfilled until we are willing- to 
go the whole ; blessed, sacrificial way with Him — 
even the way that leads through the Cross to certain 
victory and lasting peace. 

Our Task 

We have a wonderful future as a Diocese if we 
are willing to allow God to use us. We have the 
glorious privilege of restoring waste places and 
making pathways in the neglected deserts of ignor- 
ance and sin if we will only let Christ through these 
lives of ours. 

The world in which we are living is discouraged 
and fearful and unhappy because it has wandered 
in its blindness and selfishness, so far away from 
the loving purpose of God. 

The Church must lead bewildered humanity back 
to Him, but only a courageous- self-sacrificing 
Church has the power to lead. 

Every human organization may become discour- 
aged; every plan of man for the betterment of 
society may fail. Governments may prove unable 
to withstand the attacks of violent seekers after a 
new order, but the Church of the Living God can 
never grow discouraged as long as God reigns; it 
can never fail as long as it draws its power from 
Him. 

Insiduous, subtle, dangerous forces are assailing 
the Church today, but the Church will never be 
conquered by outside forces or influences. If it 
does fail to win and hold our civilization for God, 



FIFTY-FIRST ANNUAL CONVENTION 55 



1934 Bishop's Annual Address 



it will be because of lethargy and indifference and 
gross worldliness within its own ranks. 

Russia crashed to defeat on eveiy front during 
the World War, not because it lacked men, but 
because the men in the ranks did not believe in 
their leaders or their cause. They did not have 
the will to win. 

We have a Leader and we have a Cause. God 
give us power to rise from our beds of pessimism 
and despair and selfish ease and join forces with 
Him as we go forth to make that Cause the con- 
trolling motive of the nations of the world. 

A new day is dawning — a day that seems to be 
crowded with dangers — a day in which mighty 
forces will strive for the mastery of the world. 
Changes in old systems that may rock the economic 
structures of the world, stand restlessly just within 
the portals of the new day. 

Commiu*nism, socialism, nationalism and ot*her 
man-made panaceas are offered by self appointed 
physicians to a sick civilization. 

Upon. that new day, the Church in East Carolina 
and the world is entering, and it depends upon the 
attitude and spirit of that Church made up of ordi- 
nary people like you and me, as to whether that new 
day will be God's day in which victories for Him 
will be won, and dark and dreadful kingdoms made 
beautiful by His presence and power, or a day when 
Christ's loving purpose shall be defeated because 
we failed Him when He called. Because we poor, 
timid souls stood far off and saw Him die again for 
a Church that did not love enough to be willing to 
live for Him. God helping us, we will go forward 
to make His purpose known. 



56 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Summary Bishop's Diary May 

We will advance courageously under His leader- 
ship to certain victory in His name. 

I call every man and woman and child in East 
Carolina to active service today. 

I summon the ranks of youth to gla ! d service 
under the banner of the happy warrior Jesus Christ. 

I call the discouraged and indifferent and feeble 
Christians of our Diocese to renewed devotion to a 
cause 'that will illumine and glorify their lives. 

In the name of Christ, I ask the faithful to con- 
tinue to give their best to the cause which they have 
never denied. It is God's cause, committed to our 
hands. 

Realizing His purpose, relying upon His power, 
we must not, we cannot fail.

APPENDIX "C" 



REPORT OF THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY TO THE 
DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 



Right Reverend Father in God, 

and Members of the Diocesan Convention : 

As I bring you the report of the Woman's Auxiliary 
for 1933 I find many things for which to be deeply grateful 
—and others that I hope will spur us on to greater accom- 
plishments. The opportunities were never greater, but we 
have failed, at times, to see them ; so may the Holy Spirit 
open our eyes and give us Courage and Strength to measure 
up as Co-Workers with God. 

In January we had our first Annual Meeting as a separate 
unit and not as a part of the Diocesan Convention. This 
meeting was held in St. Mary's Parish, Kinston, and was 
splendidly attended. The inspiration of having our Bishop 
with us for the whole meeting, to share in the discussions 
and guide our deliberations, gave impetus to the work for 
the whole year. Bishop Penick was the Guest Speaker 
at our Mass Meeting and I am sure his influence is still 
felt by all who were so fortunate as to hear him. 

In the early Spring Mrs. Taber, National Field Secretary, 
came to us through the Provincial Field Project, for a 
series of Conferences and Round Table Discussions. She 
visited a number of Parishes, meeting with representatives 
from nearby places and bringing to each one with whom 
she came in contact a new vision of Service in even the 
simplest and humblest of tasks. The field was ready for 
the seed she planted, and we are bearing fruit already 
through the reorganization, in several places, of small groups 



76 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 



Report of Woman's Auxiliary 



May 



into unified Parish Auxiliaries, with broader vision, now 
functioning through Departments, in the Five Fields of 
.Service. 

During the first week of Lent our members cooperated 
with other Communions in the observance of the World 
Day of Prayer. And on Good Friday we shared in the 
offering for the Jerusalem and East Mission. 

In my last report I spoke of the weakness of our District 
Get-Together organizations. I am happy to report that 
they met the challenge in a splendid spirit— successfully 
conducting meetings in eleven of the twelve districts. These 
meetings were well attended, with helpful and instructive 
programs prepared, and the interest was keen. The credit 
for this awakening is due to the untiring work of the two 
Convocational Presidents, who, by contacts and constant 
effort helped the women to realize all that could be gained 
by these informal gatherings. 

The Department Chairmen have been active in keeping 
before the individual groups the information and inspira- 
tion that are constantly needed. The Church Periodical 
Club Secretary shows more Parishes interested and active 
than a year ago, and also more institutions aided. The 
Christian Social Service Chairman, as one of her achieve- 
ments, had a number of Testaments given the State Farm 
Colony, Kinston — enough so that each woman leaving the 
institution might be given one. The United Thank Offer- 
ing Custodian has tried, through her Parish representatives, 
to reach every woman in the Diocese, that each one might 
share in this united Service of Thanksgiving and Praise. 
The Secretary and Treasurer have been tireless in their 
work, and have answered gladly my every request. Their 
work has made mine but a labor of love. 

In June I attended the meeting of the Colored Convo- 
cation in Goldsboro and heard the reports of their work. 



FIFTY-FIRST ANNUAL CONVENTION 77 



1934 Report of Woman's Auxiliary 



They have been loyal Stewards and have worked faithfully 
for the advancement of the Kingdom, under the fine leader- 
ship of their consecrated President. 

Our work, to be understood and appreciated in its scope 
and indusiveness, must be grouped under the heading of 
the Five Fields of Service. It is my earnest wish that a 
report could be made without the mention of dollars and 
cents, for they seem so inadequate as an expression of ac- 
complishments ; yet I realize that only as we answer the 
call of Stewardship of means can we really judge our 
growth. The figures for our work in 1933 show 1833 women 
enrolled in some Parish organization, and the amount of 
work is as follows : 

Parish, $ 5,116.25 

Community 1,833.74 

Diocese ..' 3,166.92 

Nation 196.09 

World 345.76 

Supply 1,706.24 

United Thank Offering 2,217.90 

Total $14,582.90 

In the close study of these figures we 'must face a hu- 
miliating fact— we have fallen short in every Field except 
the Parish. Is that due to a growing selfishness and lack 
of Vision? I trust not — but that it was due to conditions 
at home which were responsible for the women having to 
help where they had not been called on before. God grant 
that as we go forward in a general recovery we may advance 
another year to greater Service in every Field. 

In May the women had the privilege, for the first time, 
of attending the sessions of the Dioicesan Convention. As 
we are an Auxiliary nothing can help us better to see our 
opportunities for service than to know the problems that 



78 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 



Report of Woman's Auxiliary May 



confront our Bishop, the Clergy and Laymen in this great 
Church of ours. 

Our summer Work was again closely associated with 
Camp Leach and the young people, as the Bishop asked us 
to help with the salary of Miss Cornelia Harris while she 
was back in the Diocese. The women in the Diocese feel 
keenly the loss of Miss Harris, and to have helped in even 
a small measure, to have her with us, was a privilege. Her 
work, and that of Mrs. Howard, the Student Worker at 
East Carolina Teachers College, have borne fruit in every 
place they have touched. One bit of Summer Work that 
I hope the women of the Diocese may accomplish is keep- 
ing open the Church Schools. I realize that many young 
people are scattered during the summer months, but there 
are always some at home. and we all need to keep up the 
habit of regular Church attendance. 

It is with a deep sense of gratitude that I report a Gift 
of Life. Elizabeth Andrews, of St. Paul's Church, Green- 
ville, is at Chase House, Chicago, preparing for life service. 
For such a gift we should all give thanks. 

During the Senior Camp Auxiliary women from all over 
the Diocese met for one day at Camp Leach. This is an 
annual event and one that offers many opportunities. We 
see the young people at work and play and have messages 
of inspiration from our Bishop and other National leaders 
who are members of the Camp staff. 

For two weeks in July I attended the Adult Conferences 
at Kanuga where contacts were made that have been most 
helpful. Following that our Diocesan Officers had a two 
days conference at Camp Leach where we outlined our 
Program of work and study for the year. This Program 
was based on the courses at Kanuga and embraces the whole 
program of the whole Church. 

In the early Fall the Bishop asked me to attend the Clergy 
Conference and present the plans for the observance of 



FIFTY-FIRST ANNUAL CONVENTION 79 

1934 Report of Woman's Auxiliary 

Armistice Day, November 11th, as a Quiet Day for Prayer. 
This was a project of the whole Church, being observed 
all over the world in every Mission station. Members of 
the American Legion Auxiliary joined with us in this day 
of Prayer for Peace and International understanding and 
I feel that it was a very blessed experience, strengthening 
and heartening the women for their winter's work. 

The two Convocations had their regular meetings in 
November. They were well attended and the reports of 
their work were another tribute to the leadership of the 
two Convocational Presidents. 

Late in November we had two Delegates and several 
visitors to attend the Provincial Meeting of the Woman's 
Auxiliary in Montgomery, Alabama. There were many 
highlights in this meeting, but the one of deepest interest 
to us was the election of Mrs. Henry J. MacMillan, our 
former Diocesan President, as Provincial President of the 
Woman's Auxiliary. This is a great honor that has come, 
not only to Mrs. MacMillan but to Bast Carolina, yet it 
carries with it grave responsibilities. So let us be con- 
stantly supporting her with our prayers. 

And so I bring to a close a report that is not so much 
a record of accomplishments as it is a statement of Faith 
and Hope — Faith in the Divine Purpose that guides our 
lives, and Hope that daily we may be used in the building 
of the Kingdom of God on Earth. 

Respectfully submitted, 

ANNA ROSE OUTLAND

APPENDIX "F" 



REPORT OF BOARD OF MANAGERS — THOMPSON 

ORPHANAGE AND TRAINING INSTITUTION 

CHARLOTTE, N. C. 



The Thompson Orphanage has just completed its forty- 
seventh year, and we have many things for which we are 
deeply grateful to Our Heavenly Father. During all the 
difficulties which have been experienced in the other phases 
of our Church and political life, we are able to report that 
by the careful management of the Superintendent and all 
his assistants, and with utmost economy, we were able, 
through the year 1933, to meet all our obligations and to 
close our year with a larger balance than we had at the 
beginning of 1933. Of course, the Orphanage must have 
a substantial balance at the beginning of each year in order 
to meet its obligations, as the larger part of our income is 
not received until Thanksgiving. 

We have at the Orphanage now 105 children. During the 
past year, 118 were cared for, 63 girls and 55 boys ; a total 
of 39,224 days were spent by our children and 117,672 
meals were served. At the present time we have 22 full 
orphans, 80 half orphans, and 13 with both parents: 72 
from the Diocese of North Carolina, 19 from the Diocese 
of East Carolina, and 14 from the Diocese of Western North 
Carolina. We desire to emphasize the great value of our 
Chapel. Under Mr. Wheeler's spiritual leadership our 
young people are enabled to enjoy and greatly appreciate 
the Church services. During the year eight were baptized 
and ten were confirmed. A large majority of our children 
attend St. Peter's Sunday School. 

Under the oversight of our physician, Dr. Myers Hunter, 
and his many assistants, the health of our children has been 
well cared for and we have had very little sickness through- 
out the year. The addition to our medical staff of a mental 



92 



DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 



Report of Board of Managers of the Thompson Or. 



May 



health expert, Dr. Sylvia Allen, has already meant much in 
the better understanding of some of our problem cases 
Dr. Allen assists Dr. Hunter in the mental diagnosis of each 
child seeking admission. She is aiding the Orphanage 
staff to cope more intelligently with the behaviour problems 
which are constantly arising. She has made exhaustive and 
comprehensive studies of a number of the children. All 
of our children except four or five pre-school children attend 
the city schools of the City of Charlotte. 

Our children are clothed by the women of the Churches 
throughout the state. The Board is very grateful for the 
cooperation that has been shown in every way by our 
Church people and their efforts for the children at the 
Orphanage. 

In closing, there are two problems which we hope we will 
be able to meet during this year. The first one is the more 
careful study of each child and the conditions surrounding 
its need before its acceptance into the Orphanage. Through 
one of the other agencies in Charlotte, we hope to be able 
to secure, at a minimum expense, the part time services of 
a trained worker, and this will make possible for us to give 
the benefit of our institution to children who may be more 
deserving of our care than perhaps some of those who are 
placed now without adequate study of their real need for 
institutional care. 

Our second problem is the placing of the older girls and 
boys, and we call upon all our Church people to help us in 
solving this problem by using their influence to help the 
Committee on Dismissals to place the children in homes 
where children are desired and can be provided for through 
a normal home life, and to help to find the proper oppor- 
tunities for these boys and girls to receive work and to be 
cared for in making their adjustments in the community 
and Church life. 



APPENDIX "G" 



REPORTS FROM CLERGY 



REV. E. deF. HEALD, Non-Parochial, Hickory, N. C. 

I respectively submit the following report. 

I have served the Church in various places the past year 
as needed, in particular at Hickory, N. C, Kanuga, Little 
Switzerland, Valle Cruets, Blowing Rock and at Trinity 
Church, Portsmouth, Va. 

REV. JOHN HARTLEY, Ph. D., Retired. Kinston, N. C. 

I beg leave to respectfully submit the following: 

Upon invitation of the Rev. Jalmes E. Holder, rector, I, 

officiated at Easter Services in St. Augustine's, Kinston. 

Other than this I have nothing to report except two or 

three burial services. 

REV. HERBERT D. CONE. Retired, Baltimore, M'd. 

The following is my report for the services I have held 
during the past diocesan year. 

During the month of June I took the services at the re- 
quest of Bishop Helfenstein one Sunday night at St. James' 
Church, (Irvington) Baltimore; one Sunday at St. Mat- 
thew's Church, Sparrow Point, Md., and one Sunday at 
St. Mary's Church, Ernmorton, Md. Then was in charge 
of All Saints' Church, Worcester, Massachusetts during 
the month of July and in charge of Memorial Church, 
Baltimore from August 15th to September 15th. Assisted 
the rector of Memorial Church, Baltimore in four celebra- 
tions of the Holy Communion, assisted in several special 
services. Acted as Priest-in-charge of St. Mark's Church, 
Louisville, Kentucky from February 14th and have been 



94 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 



Reports from Clergy May 



asked to stay in charge of the parish till a new rector is 
secured. So far have had in St. Mark's Church, week-day 
services 38; Sunday services 23; and celebrations of the 
Holy Communion 17. Have baptized two persons and 
officiated at three funerals. 

This report is up to Easter only. In addition as priest 
in charge of St. Mark's I have since Ash Wednesday, made 
one hundred and ten parish calls. 

Regret exceedingly that I will not be able to attend the 
next meeting of the Convention but on that date I expect 
to be officiating at certain services in the north.

Mr. John R. Tolar presented the report of the Department 
of Finance, which was adopted as follows : 

"In the opinion of the Department of Finance, the Diocese 
has cause to feel greatly encouraged, not only because of the 
splendid efforts of the Parishes and 'the Missions during the last 
month of 1934, which enabled us to come within Three Thousand 
Dollars Of balancing our 1934 budget, but, also, because of the 
splendid evidence of renewed responsibility for the Diocese and 
Genera] Church work as reflected in the result of the Every 
Member Canvass throughout the Diocese. 

"In 1934, more parishes and missions paid their full quota 
than at any time' in recent years and the report of Expectancies 
of parishes and missions for 1935 is the largest we have had in! 
some time. Because of these facts, the Department for the first

1<)35 Report of Finance Department 



"We recommend the following budget for 1935: 

EXPECTATIONS 1935 

From General Church $ 2,775.00 

Investments and specials 4,000.00 

Pence P.an 3,840.00 

Parishes and Missions 33,139.69 

TOTAL $43,754.69 

To be appropriated as follows: 

General Church and Provincial Synod $ 7,150.00 

*Diocesan Administration, General and Convention 

Expense '. 13,315.00 

Missionary Expense 17,170.00 

Reduction Diocesan Debt 2,600.00 

Margin of Safety 2,200.00 

Contingent Fund 1,319.69 

TOTAL $43,754.69 

* Including increase in Bishop's salary to $4,700.00 and Executive 
Secretary's salary to $2 550.00. 

The Treasurer feels that the income from the Pence Plan will 
be in the neighborhood of $8,000.00 for the year 1935, instead of 
$3,800.00 as outlined in the budget. After the application of all 
receipts from the Pence Plan in 1935 upon diocesan debts, if the 
same are sufficient to pay, or exceed the 1935 debt curtailments, 
as- shown in the budget, and receipts of the Diocese from othai* 
sources, are in amounts in excess of other budgeted expenditures, 
the Department would recommend: 

THAT such excess may be used to increase In amounts not 
exceeding ten per centum, the stipends of the missionary clergy 
and lay workers of the Diocese, this amount to be payable In 
December, 1935. 

THAT the General Church quota be raised to $8,000.00. 

THAT should there be any unappropriated balance, this balance 
to be used for a Forward Movement in 1936." 



'SO DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 



Apportionment Plan May 

On motion of Rev. W. H. Milton, D. D., the Treasurer of 
the Diocese was instructed to notify the Parishes and Mis- 
sions of the importance of paying by the end of the year 
the amounts that they told the Diocese to expect from them 
for Diocesan and General Church purposes. 

After full discussion of an apportionment plan for the 
next year, it was decided to adopt the one proposed by the 
Field Department as follows: 

In an effort to establish a uniform basis of apportionment for 
the Parishes and Missions of the Diocese for the work of the 
Church in the Diocese and the General Church, the Field Depart- 
ment of the Executive Council of the Diocese presents this plan 
to the Convention for its adoption: 

I. We recommend that the Parishes and Missions of the 
Diocese accept as a minimum of responsibility, apportionments 
equal to one-half of their reported current operating costs; and as 
a goal of endeavor, apportionments equal to 100 per cent of their 
reported current operating costs. 

II. That the following graduated scale of minimum salaries 
for the clergy of this Diocese .be established: 

In Parishes and Mission Fields of 100 Communicants (or less) 
a minimum salary of $1500.00 a year; 100 to 150 Communicants, a 
minimum salary of $1800.00 a year; 150 to 200 Communicants, a 
minimum salary of $2000.00 a year; 200 to 250 Communicants, a 
minimum salary of $2400.00 a year; 250 Communicants (or more), 
a minimum salary of $2700.00 a year, or as much as the ability or 
desire of the Parish or Mission Field determines. 

III. That the current operating costs be based upon this 
graduated scale of minimum salaries (or the amount paid by the 
Parish or Mission Field, if the salary of the minister be larger 
than the minimum salary), together with the other items of current 
expense as defined under current expense by the General Church. 

IV. That in a field where more than one parish or mission 
is served by a minister, the following method shall be used to 
detenmine the amount of the minister's salary to be assumed by 



FIFTY-SECOND ANNUAL CONVENTION '31 



1935 Apportionment Pl«m 



each of the several parishes or missions in the field: (1) Deter- 
mine the number of communicants in a field by adding the number 
of communicants reported by each parish or mission in the field. 
This total number of communicants will determine the minimum 
salary basis of the minister in the field. (2) Determine the number 
of church services held in a field by adding the number of church 
services reported by each parish or mission in the field. (3) Divide 
the total numiber of church services held in the field into the sug- 
gested minimum salary of the minister in the field (or into the 
salary paid the minister if it be greater than the minimunn salary), 
and the answer will be the average cost of the minister's salary 
for each church service held in the field. (4) A parish or mission 
in a field where more than one parish or mission is served by the 
minister, determines its part of the minister's salary by multi- 
plying the average cost of the minister's salary for each church 
service by the number of church services reported as held in the 
parish or mission. The information for all the above to be obtained 
from the parochial reports of the previous year. 

(It should be noted that this method distributes in am equi- 
table manner the financial responsibility of the minister's salary. 
The places that are getting the larger part of a minister's time- 
as determined by the number of church services held— assume the 
larger part of the salary-, other places in the field pay on the 
same basis for the church services they receive.) 

V. That any parish or mission that exceeds and pays an 
apportionment of 100 per cent of its reported current operating 
costs shall be privileged to designate the surplus. 

Eev. Worth Wicker read the report of the Committee on 
the State of the Church, as follows: 

REPORT OF COMMITTEE ON THE STATE OF THE CHURCH 

Reverend Father in God, and delegates assembled, we beg leave 

to submit the Report of the Committee on the State of the Church. 

This the fifty-second year of the life of our Diocese, and the 

twentieth year of the Episcopate of our Bishop, seems to mark a 

turning of the tide from the ebb of depression to the 'flow of 

renewed activity and achievement. Since 1929 we have heard 

' reports of repeated curtailment in activity and accomplishment, 



32 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 



Report of Committee on State of the Church May 

but this year is indicative of an encouraging change. Instead of 
retreat, we can report advance along the line and take courage 
therefrom. 

In 1933 we reached the lowest ebb of contributions, having 
fallen to a sum which was $120,897.67 under the peak offering of 
1926, but still the offering of 1933 was in excess of the offering in 
1919, when we were enjoying a period of comparative prosperity, 
but before we had experienced the stimulating effect of the Nation 
Wide Campaign. During the past year the people of the Diocese 
of East Carolina contributed for all purposes the sum of $115,967.03, 
Which represented an increase of $3,8.08.96 over the previous year. 
The physical property of the Diocese was increased in value to 
the extent of $14,675 i bringing the total valuation of the property 
of the Church in East Carolina to $1,745,285.00. 

It might be of interest for us to compare the condition of the 
Diocese today with its condition when our beloved Bishop was 
consecrated. 

1914 1934 

Communicants 5,389 7,154 

Baptized Persons 9,722 10,040 

Number of Church Edifices 93 117

Pupils 4,068 4,245 

Grand Total of Expenses $80,377.78 $114,283.23 

Number of Clergy 32 43 

Considering the apparently small . increase in communicants, 
in spite of the fact that our Bishop has confirmed over 7,000 persons 
during the last twenty years, let us try to analyze the statistics, 
and determine where and how the great loss occurred. 
Communicant strength 1914 5,389 

Confirmed since 1914 (approximately) 7 000 



Total 12,389 

Lost by death 1,839 

Lost by transfer 2,493 

Dropped from parish lists 4,247 

Total 8,579 



FIFTY-SECOND ANNUAL CONVENTION 33 

1935 iteoort of Committee on State ot tke Church 

Less those "added otherwise" 2,870 

Net Loss 5,709 

Communicant strength' of the Diocese should be 6,680 

The actual communicant strength of the Diocese is 7,154. Thus, 
we have 474 communicants in the Diocese which are unaccounted 
for in the statistics. It seems that the number "dropped from the 
parish lists" is unreasonably large. To have 4,247 communicants 
unaccounted for shows a great weakness in our system of keeping 
track of our churchmen. Even if we allow for the difference in 
those transferred, and those "added otherwise", we still have a 
net loss of 3,870 communicants absolutely unaccounted for. This 
represents 28 per cent of the gains of our church. It is high time 
that something be done to correct this matter. It is proposed by 
your Committee that this Convention instruct the Committee on 
Canons to draft a Canon placing the responsibility for the transfer 
of communicants on the Rector, or Priest in Charge, of a parish 
or mission, and for this Convention to memorialize the General 
Convention to amend 'General Church Canon 42 (1931) S.I (111) 
to make it mandatory for the Rector of a Parish to transfer a 
communicant who has removed to another Parish. And further- 
more, that this Convention instruct the Committee on Canons to 
submit an amendment to Canon 22. S. I. (1) to provide that at the 
time of the Annual Visitation of the Bishop, the Parish Register 
shall be submitted to him for his examination, that he may deter- 
mine that it is properly kept, all communicants accounted for, and 
that the entries are properly indexed. 

The matter of insurance is one to cause grave concern. Our 
Parochial Reports for this year show that the following places 
carry no insurance on their buildings: St. John's, Bonnerton; St. 
John's, Griffon; Zion. Jessama; St. Luke's, Roper; St. Paul's, 
Vanceboro; St. Philip's, Campbellton (Fayetteville) ; St. Augus- 
tine's Kinston; St. Peter's, Sunbury; and St. Thomas', Jasper. 
With financial conditions as they are, it would be a most disastrous 
thing if we should lose any of these buildings. The Committee 
recommends that this matter be referred to the Committee on 
Insurance. 

During the past year our Bishop confirmed 323 persons. He 
ordained 3 Deacons, and advanced 2 Deacons to the Priesthood,

The Fayetteville City Schools were billed for Insurance on the 
Parish on the basis of annual rate, whereas the Diocese got credit 
on basis of a three year rate. This gives the Diocese an additional 
credit of $4.30. 

This makes the total amount of the Schedule $76,585.90, one 
third of the same being due each year. The amount of premium 
shown is the amount due each year. The total premium each is 
$472.50. The net amount paid by the Diocese last year was $184.00, 
since which time the Committee have made further collections on 
account of this insurance and we anticipate the receipt of additional 
funds. 

The Committee have diligently followed up on the collection 
of these items by writing letters and sending bills and we most 
earnestly ask a full cooperation so that we can reduce the number 
of letters another year. The Committee, as stated in previous 
reports, desire to render the highest possible service in connection 
with any insurance matters and with your cooperation we will serve 
to the best of our ability.

Orphanage and Training Institution as follows: 



FIFTY-SECOND ANNUAL CONVENTION 41 

1935 Report of Bonrd of Manager* of Thompson Orphanage 

REPORT OF BOARD OF MANAGERS OF THE THOMPSON 
ORPHANAGE AND TRAINING INSTITUTION 

During the past year, 121 children were cared for. The total 
number of days care being 38,344. 115,032 meals were served. 
14 children were placed and 14 were admitted. 

The present number of children is 108, 61 girls and 47 boys. 
11 are from Western North Carolina, 26 from East Carolina, and 
71 from North Carolina. 

A thorough examination is given each candidate for admission 
by Dr. Myers Hunter, the Orphanage Physician, assisted by Dr. 
Sylvia Allen, who gives the mental tests, and by Dr. Hairvey Barrett, 
who gives the laboratory tests. Under Dr. Hunter's watchful care, 
the usual splendid health record of the children has been main- 
tained, and practically all have gained in weight. The Orphanage 
Chapel is the center of the life of the Institution. To it the chil- 
dren love to come, and from it they receive inspiration and training. 
A choir of the older children renders the musical portion of the 
service heartily and with reverence. Some of the older boys serve 
as lay readers. Five children were baptized and fourteen were 
confirmed this past year. 

Eight children, four boys and four girls, graduated from High 
School in May. Three of these were honor students and all made 
splendid grades. Three have been awarded scholarships for higher 
education. The children enter with enthusiasm into all the srhool 
activities, social, physical and intellectual. They have won a 
number of school honors' iiiid awards. 

Through the cooperation of the Thompson Orphanage Com- 
mittes in the parishes and missions throughout the Diocese we 
hope to handle more successfully the difficult task of placing the 
boys and girls who leave the Institution each year through gradu- 
ation or otherwise. 

It is the opinion of your board of Managers that the Orphan- 
age is being managed with utmost economy and with a budget 
based on bare necessities. Due to this careful management, all 
obligations were met and no money was borrowed during 1934 for 
which we are deeply thankful to our many devoted friends through- 
out the Diocese, who assisted so generously in making this achieve- 
ment possible. 

The present year, however, promises to be a most difficult one 
financially for the Orphanage for the following reasons: Interest

from the Endowment Fund has decreased several thousand dollars 
because of lowered interest rates, non-payment of interest and the 
failure of some mortgage investments, interest from the Duke 
Endowment was over $200.00 less than expected, receipts from 
other sources have diminished while, on the other hand, the coat 
of food and other necessities has risen. 

At the beginning' of each year the Orphanage should have a 
balance In the bank to carry it through the spring and summer 
months, for the greater part of the Income is not received until 
Thanksgiving. For the. first time in many years, the Orphanage 
has started out with an unbalanced budget to the extent of nearly 
$2000.00. 

\It is necessary, therefore, for the income to be supplemented 
somehow if the treasury is to avoid having a deficit at the close 
of the year. Your Board of Managers appeals, therefore, for even 
larger contributions than heretofore from parishes, missions, Sun- 
day Schools, Bible Classes and individuals, that the work of the 
Orphanage may not have to be curtailed in any part. 

On motion the visitors to the Convention were given seats.

APPENDIX "A" 



BISHOP'S ADDRESS 



BISHOP'S ANNUAL ADDRESS 



Brethren of the Clergy and Laity 
of the Diocese of East Carolina— 

"Grace be unto you and peace from God our Father, 
and. from the Lord Jesus Christ." 

With a feeling of profound gratitude to God for 
having graciously permitted me to serve you for 
twenty years, I welcome you to the . fifty-second 
Annual Convention of our Diocese. 

We are meeting in St. Paul's Church, Beaufort, 
for the first time, and we must first of all offer our 
word of praise to this Parish for the new life and 
energy that has made it possible for it to take its 
fine, helpful place among the all too few self-sup- 
porting parishes of East Carolina. 

Twenty Years 

It is fitting perhaps that I should at this Conven- 
tion give a brief survey of my Episcopate during 
the past twenty years, and I do so with a sense of 
humble pride that I have been permitted to play my 
little part in the life and work of the Church in 
East Carolina, and beyond, during these epoch mak- 
ing years that have witnessed the changing of the 
map of the world. 

Since coming to you in January 1915, I have laid 
my hands in Confirmation upon the heads of seven 
thousand, four hundred and sixty-one people, a 
greater company than our present number of re- 
corded Communicants. 

I have Ordained forty-five Deacons and forty-four 
Priests, many of whom are numbered among our pre- 
sent splendid staff of Diocesan Clergy. Others of that 
number who received their commissions as Ordained

servants of Christ, in East Carolina are serving Him 
and His Church in nineteen dioceses throughout the 
United States, and from the reports that come to me 
from time to time, I am satisfied that these men 
are making full proof of their ministry. 

During this same period, East Carolina has been 
represented by her faithful daughters in Alaska, the 
Phillipines, Porto Rico. China and Japan and in 
numerous dioceses and Missionary districts in this 
country. 

We have built during the past twenty years six 
new Churches to replace those already established, 
and twelve Churches in places where we had never 
been represented. 

We rejoice in the knowledge that East Carolina 
from the beginning of its history has been a mis- 
sionary-minded diocese, and while we have not been 
able to give large sums to the cause of missions 
throughout the world, we have honestly tried to 
carry our share of the financial responsibility. With 
only fourteen self-supporting parishes out of the 
n'inety-five parishes and missions in the Diocese, 
we have not only responded, with rare exceptions, 
year after year to the privilege of doing our full 
part in the work of the National Church, but have 
carried forward, without endowment or special 
gifts the largest diocesan Missions program, per 
capita, of any diocese in the entire South. 

This has been made possible through the self 
sacrificing generosity of many of the parishes, and 
notably of some 1 who forgetful of their own parish 
needs, went without necessary equipment and es- 
sential improvements in order that the larger cause 
might not suffer. 



FIFTY-SECOND ANNUAL CONVENTION 53 



19 35 Bishop's Annual Address 



We have had to struggle year after year in order 
to keep the Missionary programs from faltering, 
but we have never lost heart or taken counsel oi 
our fears. 

Your Bishop has had many trying days, and the 
task has not been easy at times, but I have always 
been strengthened by the consciousness that my 
burden, if one could call it a burden, was shared by 
my loyal friends of the Clergy and laity, by men 
and women who have never failed to give me their 
sympathy, their prayers and their loving support. 
Some of those men and women have entered into 
that larger life with God, but the memory of their 
helpful companionship and beautiful cooperation is 
a living force in my life today. Many others of 
that loyal band are still with us, and for all that 
they have meant, and still mean, to me, I am pro- 
foundly grateful. In the fellowship of such noble 
souls I will continue, please God, to go forward 
without fear to the larger field of more perfect 
service in His name and for His cause. 
Outstanding Work 
Looking back over the past twenty years, certain 
features of our work stand out as unusually hopeful. 
The splendid campaign inaugurated and carried 
forward under the leadership of the Rev. Dr. Milton, 
Rev. William E. Cox, Rev. Thomas P. Noe, Mr. 
George B. Elliott, and others, which lifted our Dio- 
cese to such a high plane of intelligent and generous 
missionary interest. 

The creation of the Executive Council with its 
helpful departments, and the invaluable service of 
our faithful and efficient Secretary, Rev. Walter R. 
Noe. 



54 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 



Kishop's Annual AdflrcsM 



May 



The growth and development of the Colored work 
with the increasing sense of responsibility of that 
group of our fellow Churchmen. Of the painfully 
few self-supporting Colored Churches in the South, 
we are proud to report that two of that number are 
in East Carolina. 

The beautiful and consecrated work of the Wom- 
an's Auxiliary which under the leadership of three 
spirit filled women during the years of my Episco- 
pate has maintained its place as the very living, 
loving heart of missionary activity and zeal in our 
Diocesan life. 

The young people's work with its splendid Dio- 
cesan organization, its helpful parish activities and 
its marvelous opportunity for training future leaders 
in our own Summer camp on the Pamlico. 

Our Future 

Surely, with our background, our equipment, our 
loyal, united Diocese, there is no reason why we 
should not go forward Math high courage and un- 
conquerable faith to greater heights of service, to 
greater victories for Christ and His cause. 

We must increase the number of self-supporting 
parishes and fields in order that our resources may 
be used in the extension of His Kingdom — for an 
advance movement into those fields of real need 
which have waited for us so long. 

This can be done if we really have the mind of 
Christ, if His purpose becomes our purpose, if His 
Gospel becomes a vital power in the lives of our 
people. It is a significant fact that every parish and 
mission field assuming self-support during my Epis- 
copate, did so, not during the old easy days, but 



FIFTY-SECOND ANNUAL CONVENTION 55 

]935 Bishop's Annual Address 

during the hard, stern years of the great depression. 
A notable example of this fine spirit is found in the 
Martin Caunty field, made up of the Church of the 
Advent, Williamston: St. Martin's, Hamilton; and 
Trinity Mission, Bear Grass; which assumed self- 
support since the last meeting of our Convention. 

The fine example of this field should and MUST 
be followed by other groups of dependent Churches 
during the next five years. 

The Church in East Carolina must continue to be 
broad in its conception of its place and part in the 
whole program of the Church. We must continue 
to avoid the fatal provincialism that tends to narrow 
the vision to the horizon of our limited boundaries. 
We must be loyal to our Diocese ; we must be gener- 
ously responsive to its needs; but we must never 
forget that our Diocese is a sharer in the whole plan 
of God, and that your Bishop, while attached to 
East Carolina by ties of affection and by Canonical 
order, is a Bishop of the Church of God whose 
boundaries are as wide as the love of God, and whose 
field extends to the uttermost bounds of the world. 

Should the day come when it would seem wise to 
lose our Diocesan identity and be merged with a 
larger and stronger organization, I believe that we 
wo<uld face the situation with wisdom and courage 
and self -forgetting consecration, because we have 
been taught that the whole is greater than any part, 
and that our chief purpose is not to glorify or mag- 
nify one section of our State, but rather to consider 
God's plan for the strengthening of His Kingdom in 
North Carolina and the world. 

As we go forward, we must be keenly conscious 
of the problems confronting our civilization, prob- 



56* DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA

lems that must be met and solved by a Church that 
still believes in its mission, and still trusts in the 
resistless power of God. 

The Forward Movement Commission has empha- 
sized the emergency confronting the Church today. 
It has frankly admitted that we are not holding the 
line for Christ and His Church. 

That as a Church we are neglecting to give of our 
means to that cause for which Jesjus counted it 
worth while to die. 

That we are neglecting our privilege of meeting 
in God's House for worship and instruction. 

That worldliness and indifference are permeating 
the life of the Church and poisoning the stream that 
was designed to make glad, not only the City of 
God, but the cities and towns and slums and country 
side of this earth. 

That we are neglecting to train the youth of 
America in Christian citizenship, and that as a result 
of that neglect, there are more than fifteen million 
young people in America to whom the Church means 
practically nothing, and because THIS is true, our 
jails and penitentiaries are crowded with criminals 
whose average age in the past ten years has dropped 
from thirty to nineteen. 

The Church must go forward with Christ. It miist 
renew its spiritual vigor. It must recover its lost 
radiance. It must cast off its sloth and indifference 
and worldliness, or it must be honest enough not to 
call itself by the name of Him Whose life it no longer 
cares to live, and whose Body it no longer strives to 
represent. 

There must be a renewal of spiritual energy, a 
departure from the cold, formal acceptance of a

system that seems unable to understand the tragedy 
of a broken world. 

The Church cannot answer - the agony and the 
rebellion and the cynicism of poor disillusioned hu- 
manity simply by preaching to the pious few on 
Sunday. It must in the spirit of Jesus lose its con- 
ventionality, break away from its pious, reserved 
respectability and go forward with its Master to 
meet and solve the problems of today. 

The problems of restless youth,, impatient with 
things as they are, demanding a new order and a 
new day. 

The problems of a wretched social order that for- 
ces millions of men to walk the streets and roads 
of the world, asking for a chance to live. 

The problems of a world filled with hate and 
dreadful war. s 

I believe with all my soul that the Church of the 
living fiod, consecrated to its task, appropriating 
the promised power, moving forward under the 
leadership of Jesus, can solve every problem that 
threatens the peace of the world today; that it can 
enlist its youth in the great adventure of redemp- 
tion; that it can permeate society with its divine 
purpose that justice will be restored to its rightful 
place and men made in His image lifted from their 
degradtion and placed upon that secure road over 
which as sons of God they may walk into the prom- 
ised land of their heritage. 

In the name of our Master Christ, I call upon you 

to go forward today; to cast aside every weight 

of selfishness and indifference and fear and doubt; 

to go forward to certain victory. 

The road is hard: the enemy is real and deter-

APPENDIX "0" 



REPORT OF ANNUAL MEETING OF WOMAN'S 
AUXILIARY 



The theme of the Triennial Meeting of the Woman's Aux- 
iliary to the National Council in Atlantic City was, "IF WE 
BE HIS DISCIPLES". "Close to Christ and Forward with 
Him" was added to this theme at the 48th Annual Meeting 
of the Woman's Auxiliary to The National Council, Diocese 
of East Carolina, held in Christ Church, Elizabeth City, Jan- 
uary 23, 24, 1935. 

Bishop Darst Speaks on Discipleship 
The meeting opened with the celebration of the Holy 'Com- 
munion with Bishop Darst as celebrant. After Communion 
the Bishop gave an informal talk on Discipleship. He dis- 
cussed Christ as a companion, and taking Peter as an ex- 
ample of a person wandering from Christ, he brought the 
scene of the trial of the Master vividly before the women; 
then Peter's denial, saying, "If he had held the hand of 
Christ that night, he would not have denied Him." 

Welcome and Response 

Mrs. W. D. Glover, President of the hostess Auxiliary 
graciously welcomed the delegates and visitors to the meet- 
ing. Mrs. A. T. St.Amand of St. Paul's, Wilmington, re- 
sponded. 

President's Annual Report 

Mrs. Outland began by asking "Have we grown in 19'34?" 
She explained that the program was divided into three main 
headings, Christian Citizenship, Development of the Life of 
the Spirit, and Missions in this Age. 

The following is a list of some of the activities she had a 
part in last year. Lake Kanuga, Auxiliary Day at Camp

Report of Woman's Auxiliary May 

Leach, Clergy Conference, the fall canvass and preparations 
for the Triennial Meeting in Atlantic City. 

Mrs. Outland expressed her appreciation of the privilege 
of attending the Triennial as a delegate from the Auxiliary. 
One of her deepest impressions was the realization of the in- 
timate share all of us have in the Church's program. She 
discussed the value of the intimate contact with the leaders 
in the Church. "Our greatest need is the aw r akening of a 
sense of responsibility." 

The recommendations for the coming year are the study 
of last year's program, study of Triennial address, every 
woman attend a retreat or conference, and last, but not least, 
emphasize the Life of the Spirit. 

Provincial President 

"If we would go forward, we must go deeper" said Mrs. 
MacMillan. There are three principles in the development 
of the life of Discipleship, the supremacy of God, the im-i 
portance of each person, God's child and mutual self-sacri- 
fice. The highest endeavor of the Woman's Auxiliary is 
sharing Him with others. A plea was made to the women 
pUo keep the work of the Auxiliary on the highest plane 
possible. 

Lake Phelps Mission 

In the absence of Miss Lona Belle Weatherly, Bishop 
Darst gave a glowing report of the Mission at Lake Phelps, 
saying it is one of the finest pieces of missionary work in the 
United States in the last ten years. 

Principal of St. Mary's Talks 

Mrs. Ouikshank reported a thirty per cent increase in 
enrollment this year. There are twenty seven girls from 
the Diocese of East Carolina. She also reported a scholar- 
ship available in this Diocese, the examination for which 
will be held in April. 



FIFTY-SECOND ANNUAL CONVENTION 79 



1935 Report of Woman's Auxiliary 



Eeports From Delegates to Triennial Meeting 

Five minute reports were given by the following delegates 
and visitors to the Triennial Meeting : 

Mrs. J. Q. Beokwith, Missions ; Mrs. W. S. Carawan, Chris- 
tian Citizenship; Miss Caroline K. Myers, Development of 
the Life of the Spirit; Mrs. S. P. Adams, Resolutions and 
New Business ; Mrs. W. N. Tillinghast, Young People. 

They thanked the Auxiliary for the privilege of represent- 
ing the Diocese of East Carolina. Each one ably presented 
her subject and showed so much enthusiasm, the audience 
regretted there was only five minutes alloted to each person. 

Executive Secretary of the Department of 
Religious Education 
Rev. Daniel A. McGregor talked to the women about Re- 
ligious Education. He said he was not interested primarily 
in the machinery of his department but in the products ; he- 
compared workers in the department with the mechanics 
who keep the machinery oiled. He declared the ethical and 
spiritual life most important in the development of children. 
"If the State cannot guarantee this in its school system the 
Church must." "Religious Education is like the barb of the 
shaft of an arrow." The present public school educational 
system is without facilities to give children the kind of edu- 
cation they should have. The Church of Christ is much con- 
cerned about this and rightly should be. He stressd the 
•importance of developing the right attitude in the child. 
The most powerful influence is in the home, because the 
children observe, and imitate the unconscious attitude of the 
parents. Other powerful influences are the street, the movie 
and the Funnies. 

Eeports of Convocations 
The reports from the three convocations were splendid, 
showing improvement along each line of endeavor. Each

president gave as the greatest problem, non-attendance at 
the meetings of the various branches. 

The Auxiliary of St. Paul's, Wilmington, St. James', 
Ayden, St. Luke 'si, Winterville, attained a place on the 
honor roll for the year 1934. 

Delegutes Brave the Weather to Attend Mass Meeting 

All day Wednesday the rain came down in torrents — well 
maybe it wasn't torrents, but all the way to Elizabeth City 
when one was trying to steer clear of that painted line 
around curves, one thought it was torrents. Toward night 
the North Wind came to the center of the state and played 
his part, sending the mercury down, down. The riin froze 
on the windshields; icicles hung from the ice-covered run- 
ning board. Many hot applications were required to remove 
the sheet of ice from the windshield. A few were late get- 
ting to the mass meeting. In spite of the rain and the north 
wind there was a goodly attendance. 
Evening' Service 

Dr. McGregor in his sermon said the women have made a 
tremendous contribution to the Church of Christ. 'The key- 
note of the sermon was fellowship. He discussed the con- 
dition of the world today, showing how closely we are asso- 
ciated with our far away neighbors through modern inven- 
tions, the telephone, radio, wireless and the quick means of 
transportation from one country to another. He followed 
this discussion with the idea that we who belong to the fam- 
ily of God are the messengers of Christ, and we must realize 
our responsibility in helping to preserve a world wide fel- 
lowship. 

Corporate Communion Service 

The second day of the Annual Meeting of the Woman's 
Auxiliary began with its regular corporate communion at 
7 :30 A. M. with Bishop Darst as celebrant. 

The Bishop's Fund was placed on the alms basin and at

ment ; Mrs. P. T. Anthony, Supply Department ; Miss Jessie 
Peace, Church Periodical Club ; Mrs. John B. Oanmer, Field

Camp Leach 
Rev. George S. Gresham, Director of Camp Leach during 
the past summer, spoke of several changes to be made at 
Camp Leach and asked the general interest and support of 
the women in this work. 

Report of Nominating Committee 
The nominating committee, composed of Mrs. E. B. Fick- 
len, Chairman and Mrs. S. P. Adams, recommended the re- 
election of Mrs. Fred Outland as President of the Auxiliary

82 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Report of Woman's Anxiliary May 

Mrs. Outland said, "If you want me to go forward with you, 
I shall do so." She spoke very feelingly of the pleasure and 
help she had received in working with the women of the 
Auxiliary. 

Mrs. Charles R. Grundy of Norfolk, Va., was introduced 
by the president and spoke briefly of her visit to the East 
and particularly her visit to the Chapel at Tokyo, which was 
built by the gold and silver offerings presented by the wom- 
en. 

Japan 

Miss Clara Neely was introduced by Bishop Darst as the 
first woman missionary sent out by the United Thank Offer- 
ing to Japan. 

Miss Neely expressed her pleasure in having the privilege 
of speaking to the women of the Auxiliary. She spoke 
briefly of the trials and discouragements and also the joys 
of being a missionary. "The prophecy that Christ should 
rule the world is being fulfilled in Japan today." MRss 
Neely told some of the interesting experiences and incidents 
which happened during her work as an evangelist. She de- 
clared the pioneer period of missionary work is over and that 
the Church is well organized. We were told that Japan is 
the greatest reading nation in the world. She recommended 
to the women the missionary study of Japan. 

Installation Service 

The Installation Service was introduced into the meeting, 
following Miss Grace Lindley's suggestion at which time the 
officers came forward, knelt at the Altar rail, and Bishop 
Darst laying his hands upon each candidate, installed her in 
the office to which she had been elected in the Woman's Aux- 
iliary. Regarding this service there were few comments, 
chiefly be cause everyone had been too deeply touched; words 
seemed inadequate to express what one felt. 

MRS. W. A. DARDEN, Publicity Chairman.

1935 



Minutes of Executive Council 



Mrs. J. Q. Beckwith and Mrs. Fred Outland. 

The minutes of the last meeting were read and approved. 

The Forward Movement was endorsed and the Secretary 
was instructed to notify Bishop Hobson, Chairman of the 
Committee. 

The Bishop stated that the Lord's Acre Plan would be 
presented to the Annual Convention by a special speaker. 

The report of the Finance Department was adopted, as 
follows : 

Report of Finance Department 

In the opinion of the Department of Finance, the Diocese 
has cause to feel greatly encouraged, not only because of the 
splendid efforts of the Parishes and Missions during the last 
month of 1934, which enabled us to come within Three 
Thousand Dollars of balancing our budget, but, also be- 
cause of the splendid evidence of renewed responsibility for 
the Diocese and General Church work as reflected in the re- 
sult of the Every Member Canvass throughout the Diocese. 

In 1934. more parishes and missions paid their full quota 
than at any time in recent years and the report of Expecta- 
tions of parishes and missions for 1935 is the largest we have 
had in some time. Because of these facts, the Department 
for the first time in four or five years is able to present a 
budget which not only sets up a necessary reserve, but will 
provide, if Expectations are realized, something for a For- 
ward Movement. 

We recommend the following budget for 1935 : 
Expectancies 1935 

From General Church $ 2,775.00 

Investments and Specials 4,000.00 

Pence Plan '3,840.00 

Parishes and Missions 33,139.69 

TOTAL $ 43,754.69 



96 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 



Mlnntew of Kxecntlv e Council May 

To be appropriated as follows : 

General Church and Provincial Synod $ 7,150.00 

Diocesan Administration, General and 

Convention Expense 13,315.00 

Missionary Expense 17 170.00 

Reduction Diocesan Debt 2 600.00 

Margin of Safety 3,200.00 

Contingent Fund 1,319.69 

TOTAL $ 43J54.69 

The Treasurer feels that the income from the Pence Plan 
will be in the neighborhood of $8,000.00 for the year, 1935, 
instead of $3,800.00 as outlined in the budget. After the ap- 
plication of all receipts from the Pence Plan in. 1935 upon 
Diocesan debts, if the same are sufficient to pay, or exceed 
the 1935 debt curtailments, as shown in the budget;, and re- 
ceipts of the Diocese from other sources, are in amounts in 
excess of other budgeted expenditures, the Department 
would reommend 

TH.\T such excess may be used to increase, in amounts 
not exceeding ten per centum, the stipends of the missionary 
clergy and lay workers of the diocese, this amount to be pay- 
able in December, 1935. 

THAT the General Church quota be raised to $8,000.00. 
THAT should there be any unappropriated balance; this 
balance to be used for a Forward Movement in 1936. 

The Bishop made a report for the Committee on Diocesan 
Boundaries. 

After a report on Camp Leach, the following resolution 
was adopted: Resolved, That since the notes on Camp 
Leach have been paid, the special Committee on Camp Leach 
be requested to transfer the property to the Trustees of the 
Diocese. 

There being no further business, the meeting adjourned. 

WALTER R. NOE, Secretary. 



APPENDIX "F" 



REPORTS PROM CLERGY 



REV. R. B. DRANE, D. D. 

During the year I have visited several places where my 
kinfolk have entertained me and where I have several times 
been invited to minister in church. 

During August I was in residence at Nag's Head, Dare 
County and ministered in its Church, St. Andrew 's-by-the- 
Sea, where the Bishop served in the Holy Communion in 
the early morning of Sunday, August 19th, and later visited 
old Fort Raleigh, Roanoke Island, assisting with a large 
congregation in observing the anniversary of the birth and 
baptism of Virginia Dare, first-born in America of the 
English. A beautiful small chapel had been erected there 
by citizens of nearby Manteo, and given to our Church in 
recognition of consistent and persistent regard manifested 
for the place and its memories. The Chapel was dedicated 
by the Bishop for all religious, literary and historical use. 
The first service in the building was the Holy Baptism of 
an infant girl, ministered by Rev. Robert B. Drane and 
recorded in the Nag's Head Church Register. 

REV. JOHN HARTLEY, PH. D. 

In compliance with the Rev. Mr. Noe's request for a 
retired clergyman's report of his services during the year 
1934, there is little that I can say of myself. The same* 
unvarying record must suffice — just an occasional service 
now and again as opportunity and invitations come to me 
when the Rev. James E. Holder, of St. Augustine's, Kinston, 
finds it impossible for him to be in two places at the same 



98 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

Reports from Cl ergy May 

time. Thus it happened that I conducted services for him 
here yesterday, and (D. V.) shall do so again on Easter Day 
— as was the case last year. 

REV. HOWARD ALLIGOOD 

In addition to my regular work, I preached and conducted 
services at Faison, two times; Woman's Confederate Home, 
one time; County Home, twelve times; County jail, eight 
times ; made twelve trips to State Sanatorium and visited 
more than 300 persons, distributing many books and maga- 
zines to the inmates. I also buy and have mailed to those 
desiring them, Cook's Sunday School Lesson leaflets.

The regular committees were appointed by the Bishop. 

The Bishop nominated Mr. George B. Elliott as Chancellor 
of the Diocese and the Rev. Stephen Gardner moved con- 
firmation. Adopted. 

The Bishop read a statement which was ordered printed 
in the Journal as follows: 

RETIREMENT OF REV. WILLIAM H. MILTON, D. D. 

It is with a feeling of profound regret that I announce the 
decision of the Rev. William H. Milton, D. D., to retire from active 
service on November 1, 1936 

For more than twenty-seven years Dr. Milton hias exercised 
a,n inspiring and helpful ministry, not only in St. James', Wil- 
mington, hut iin the Diocese and National Church, and his going 
from us will leave a gap in our Diocesan life that it will he hard 
to fill. 

Hie has ever placed first things first, and, with beautiful self- 
forgetfulness, has always emphasized the importance of loyal :.y 
and sacrificial generosity to Christ and His Church. 

Under his leadership, St. James', Wilmington, >hias become one 
of the great missionary-minded parishes in the American Church, 
erecting and maintaining standards of service and stewardship 
that have inspired countless other parishes to move upward to 
higher planes of dievotion and generosity. 

It is saife to say that during the past seventeen years, or since 
the inauguration of the Nation-wide Campaign, in wlrich Dr. Milton 
played sudh a fine part, his parish has contributed nore than two

hundred thousand dollars to t(he work of the Diooese and General 
Church, and made it possible for East Carolina to stand very near 
the tap in its response to the call of Christ for the extension of 
this work thro ugh out the world. 

But it is not only in ability to inspire his people to generous 
giving Chat has made his ministry so outstanding in East Carolina. 
As a great preacher of the Gospel of Christ, as a beloved and 
faithful pastor and friend, as a wise and understanding counsellor 
and leader in Diocesan affairs, he has left a lasting memorial 
in the hearts of the people of his parish and Diooese. 

We shall miss him from the active ranks of our Diooese, 
Diit we are hapuy to know that he will continue as a non-oarnchlai 
clergyman of East Carolina and we will hope to have his interest 
and counsel during' the coming years. 

Our prayers and affection will go with him as he continues, 
with larger liberty of time, to make his splendid contribution 
to the life of the Church to which he has given so many Messed, 
fruitful years. 

As his Bishop and friend, to whom he has given such loyal and 
understanding cooperation, I desire that this inadequate tribute 
be recorded in the minutes of the Convention. 

On motion, the Bishop appointed the following committee 
to prepare suitable resolutions on the retirement of Dr. 
Milton ; the Rev. Charles A. Ashby. Mr. George B. Elliott. 

Mr. George B. Elliott offered a resolution which was 
referred to the Committee on Canons, as follows: 

"Amend the 3rd Section of Canon 13 by striking out the third 
paragraph thereof, reading: 

'The Trustees shall annually elect one delegate and 
one alternate to the Diocesan Convention' 

Amend 4tih Section of said Canon 13, by adding, after the 
ward 'delegate' in tihe third line, the words 'and one alternate* 
so that Section 4 shall read: 

'Section 4. The congregation of any duly organized mission, 
either without or within the limits of an already existing Parish, 
may elect from their number a delegate and one alternate to the 
Convention, who shall be admitted to a seat, and to participation 
in its deliberations, with the right of voting except in a Vote by 
Orders and Parishes,' "

28 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 



Resolutions May 

The order of the day, action on Article 4, Section 3 of 
the Constitution, having been reached, Mr. H. Edmund 
Rodgers, for the Committee on Canons, made the following 
report : 

The Committee on Revision of Canons re-introduces the fol- 
lowing resolution: 

RESOLVED: That Article IV, Section 3 of the Constitution 
be amended by striking out the word "male" and the following 
words relaiting <tfo tlhe possible electing of a delegate from anotlher 
parish, and by adding she words "one of whom may be a woman. 11 
The amended section would then read as follows: 
"Each regularly organized parish or mission within the Dio- 
cese shall be entitled to he represented by one or more Day Dele- 
gates not exceeding flour, one of whom may be a woman, chosen 
by the Vestry from the communicants of the Parish, or by the 
congregation oi ff tlhe Mission from the communicants of the- Mission. 
No person clerical or lay, under ecclesiastical censure public!./ 
declared by a competent tribunal, shall be admissaole to a seat 
in the Convention. 

REASON for Reintroduction. This resolution was passed on 
its first reading on May 17, 1933 at the Fiftieth Annual Conven- 
tion at New Bern, N. C. 

Under and by force of Article XV of the Constitution, any 
proposition tlo change the Constitution must be in writing and 
if approved by a majority of the Convention, it shall be submitted 
to the NEXT Convention, and if approved by a majority of the 
two Orders present, it shall become a part of this Constitution. 

The word "shall" in its legal and constitutional meaning is 
interpreted as MUST, and the word NEXT means nearest in time. 
As this proposition was not submitted to the 1934 Convention, 
or was submitted and a majority of the (two Orders were not 
present and did not approve it, same is herewith re-introduced 
to be acted upon and finally to be approved at the Convention 
of 1937. 

Rev Charles A. Ashby offered a substitute as follows: 

"Whereas the matter of giving representation to the women 
of our diocese has come before this Convention, and it is believed 
that the sentianent of the women should be learned on this Question; 



FIFTY-THIRD ANNUAL CONVENTION 29 



1936 Resolutions 



Therefore this fifty-third Annual Convention of the Diocese of East 
Carolina .respectfully asks that the Woman's Auxiliary of the Dio- 
cese, at its next meeting, kindly inform the Convention if they 
desire that such representation be extended to our women. 

The secretary of the Convention will send a copy to the Presi- 
dent of the Auxiliary,' 

Mr. C. R. Wheatley moved that the substitute be laid 
on the table. Adopted. 

The resolution of the Committee on Canons was then 
passed on its first reading and made the order of the day 
for the first day of the next Convention. 

Mr. H. Edmund Rodgers for the Commiittee on Canons, 
made a favorable report on the resolution of Mr. George B. 
Elliott, that Canon 13 be amended and moved, the adoption 
of the resolution. Adopted. 

The following resolutions were offered by Mr. H. Edmund 
Rodgers for the Committee on Canons, and, on motion, 
were referred to the Committee on the Church Pension Fund. 

The Committee on Revision of Canons recommends the fol- 
lowing resolutions: 

RESOLVED: That, Subsection IV of Section II of Canon 
XXIV, be amended to include the following, "It shall be the duty 
of the treasurer to make up a list of all parishes and missions 
and other organizations which have defaulted in the payment of 
their pension assessments for at least six months of the imme- 
diately preceding calendar year and to submit said list to the 
Bishop at least thirty days before the annual Diocesan Convention.'' 

RESOLVED: That, Section I of Canon XVI, be amended to 
include the Hollowing, "The Bishop of the Diocese at each annual 
Convention of the Diocese shall report to the Convention the list 
of the parishes, missions or other organizations participating in 
The Church Pension Fund, as furnished to him by the treasurer 
of the Pension Fund Committee as having defaulted in their pen- 
sion assessments for the purpose of action by the Convention at 
that time on the Dissolution and Suspension of ©aid defaulting 
bodies." 



30 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 



Resolutions May 



PURPOSE of these recommendations: 

1. Trustees' Resolutions providing for extra benefits. 

a, $1,000.00 to widow of presbyter or bishop at his deatbh. 

b. Increase the minimum scale of pensions to equalize the 
difference between benefits payable under the Rules to 
clergymen ordained before the Fund started and those 
ordained since then. It means an increase in the clergy's. 
or his widow's pension. 

2. Under the Trustees' Resolutions this; cannot be done unless 
all parishes in union with the Convention have paiid their 
pension assessment for at least six months of the immediately 

preceding year. Reducing the parish to a mission will cor- 
'reet this lack of attention to a highly important financial 
obligation. 

3. This Diocese now pays $6,000.00 in premiums and receives 
$9,000.00 for six clergymen,, six widows, and three orphans 
annually at the present time. 

The following- resolution, which was recommended by 
the Committee on Canons, was' adopted : 

RESOLVED: That, Section I of Article XIV entitled "Of the 
Vestry" be amended by adding, at the end of said Section the fol- 
lowing to wit— "Provided however, that any parish may, with 
the approval of the congregation, elect not more than one-third 
of the members of the Vestry to sen-e for a period of two years 
and not more ths n one third of such members to serve for a period 
of three years, and the members so elected shall serve for the 
term indicated and until their successors are duly elected." 

On motion of the Rev. John Benners Gibble, seats were 
given to the visiting clergy and our students from the 
Virginia Theological Seminary. 

The Bishop read his Annua? Address. (See Appendix "A")

Adopted. 

Mr. John R. Tolar made the report of the Department 
of Finance as follows: 

The Report of this Department will be very brief. Although 
receipts from Parishes and Missions for the year ending December 
31st, were only $26,000.00 instead of $32,000.00 as promised, the 
Diocese was able to close its books for the year with all bills paid, 
and with no increase in jut debt. For this we are grateful, and 
we congratulate the Bishop and the Diocesan Office for the' way 
they handled available funds to accomplish this result. 

The Department is recommending no change in the Budget 
under which we worked last year. If the returns from Parishes 
and Missions approximate reported expectations we will again 



FIFTY-THIRD ANNUAL CONVENTION 33 



1936 Report of Board of Examining Chaplains 



Close itflie year with ail out obligations met. While tlhis is in 
happy contrast to the deficits wa have had to report during the 
past few years, even the present financial status is far from 
satis factory. 

L/asit year our accomplishment was a purely negative one. We 
did not go further into debt. We failed however to provide ifunds 
for the much needed restoration in the stipends of the Missionary 
Clergy and 1/ay workers, and no funds were available lor expansion 
of Diocesan work. The outlook for the current year shows no 
improvement in tlhis situation, which unless ohlanged ifior the 
better, will ineyitably change for the worse. 

We cannot continue to ask ouir clergy and lay workers to 
continue indefinitely the sacrifices cheerfully accepted Jn the 
depths of the depression, and if the Diocese is to do the work it 
was created to do, we cannot continue to refuse to enter fields 
long waiting for us, nor can we continue to negliect important 
work necessary for our future well being, notably the building 
up of out Church Schools and the training of our Church School 
teachers. The salary of a secretary for this work should be a 
part of our Budget; but no funds are available. 

What is the answer to this situation this year with out Every 
Member Canvass behind us? There are two answers: 

First, and most important; a determined effort m every parish 
and mission in the Diocese to meet reported Expectancies one 
hundred per cent. 

Seoond, the development of the Pence Plan to its easily realized 
possibilities by the interested active cooperation of the 'elegy of 
the Diocese in presenting the Plan to their respective (fields 
independent and missionary. A Pence Can in active use in every 
home would materially increase onr financial resources, and would 
not the resultant spiritual reaction be equally great because of 
the offering made three times daily in thanksgiving to Cod for 
His waitdhlful care lover us? 

The Rev. Alexander Miller read the report of the Board 
of Examining: Chaplains for the year 1935. as follows:

Trustees of St. Mary's School and Junior College, as follows: 

REPORT OF THE TRUSTEES OF ST MARY'S SCHOOL AND 
JUNIOR COLLEGE' 

In accordance with the provisions of the Act of Incorporation 
the President of the Board of Trustees of St. Mary's School and 
Junior College presents (herewith the report of this Board for 
the academic year 1935-1936. 

Since the last Convention of this Diocese two meetings of the 
Board lhave been held, on May 28 and October 30, 1935. Botlh of 
these meetings which Were well attended were concerned chiefly 
with matters of school routine. 

The total registration of resident students for the academic 
year covered by this report is 152. This number is one less than 
the enrollment of last year. Sixteen states and one foreign coun- 
try are represented in the student body as follows: 

North Carolina, 90; Virginia, 14; South Carolling, 7; Georgia 7- 
Florida, 4; Tennessee. 3; New Jersey, 3; New York, 2; Ooinnecfi- 
cut, 2; Pennsylvania, 2; Illinois, 2; West Virginia, 1; Maryland, 1; 
Michigan, 1; Rhode Island, 1; Alabama, 1; Germany, 1. 

The registration to date of resident and day students shows 
a total of 215. Their Church affiliations aire as follows: Epis- 
copal, 131; Methodist, 30 : Presbyterian. 29: Baptist, 18; Christian, 
3; Lutheran, 2: Romam Catholic, 1; Jewish, 1. 

Thie traditional high standards of St. Marys' have •been main- 
tained, wtoh aiH academic courses fully accredited by the Southern 



FIFTY-THIRD ANNUAL CONVENTION 35 



l936 Report of Trustees, St. Mar y's School and Junior College 

Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools. It stould be od- 
aervteid that Si. Mary's ©Afters its students thirty^five wetelkis of 
cnuiss room work. This point is emphasized 'because many public 
schools in the territory served by St. Mary's have shortened the 
leng'tih of their session and in consequence have been dropped 
from tine list of accredited institutions. St. MaTy's is the only 
Junior Coilege exclusively for girls that now remains accredited 
by the Southern Association in this state. Former graduates of 
the cortege Department of St. Mary's have been admitted as full 
juniors In such Ifour-year colleges as Smith, iSinnimlons, Mount 
HOlyoke, Coucber, Sweetbriar and various (state universities and 
have Obtained 'their degrees upon (the successlfui completion of 
two years' additional work. 

'The personnel of the staff and faculty have undergone few 
changes. The Rev. Henry Felix Kloman assumed his duties a3 
Uhia.ptoin on (November 1, 1935, succeeding the Rev. Jloiseph Fletcher 
who resigned firtom this position ait the May meeting of the Trus- 
tees. Mr. Moore and Miss Digges reported 'last fall for teaching 
in the English Department. The new Alumnae Secretary is Miss 
Alide Alexander. 

During the year such improvements to 'the buildings and 
school property were made as were necessary to meet deteriora- 
tion and to add to the comfort of students. The loyalty of the 
faculty has ibeen maintained. The student body has been happy 
and the Principal reports that no trying disciplinary problems 
have arisen. 

The outlook for the session o: 1936-1937 is most encouraging, 
with 107 applicants already accepted of which 79 are returning 
students and 28 new students. This iis an all time record for 
advance registration.

This Committee on Insurance respectfully submit a report of 
their activities for the past year. 

There has 'been no change in the total amount of insurance 
carried under the Diocesan schedule policy, and this total amount 
iis $76,585. The net amount paid by the Diocese for this protection 
is $193.30. This is $9.30 more than the net cost to the Diocese 
the previous year, and this was occasioned by Camp Leach not 
being operated as successfully from a financial standpoint as the 
previous year, and the Diocese paid this portion of the premium.

FIFTY-THIRD ANNUAL CONVENTION 39 



1936 Report of Church Pension Fund 



The Secretary presented the report of the Church Pen- 
sion Fund as follows : 

April 28, 1936 

Afy dear Mr. Noe: 

I understand that your Convention will ibe held soon and, in 
accordance with my usual custom, I am sending you this lettjter 
beforehand in order that you may have some information upon 
which a report concetrining The Church Pension Fund may be biased. 
It is always of interest to know wiho the present beneficiaries 
are in each Diocese or District. I am therefore enclosing here- 
with a liislt of the present beneficiaries in t'he Diocese of East. 
Carolina. 

As to tlhe payment of pension assessments, upon which tlhe very 
life of tlhte Fund depends, our records sihow itJhat there are re- 
markably few arrears. There are many Dioceses and Districts 
which have practically perfect records since t'he beginning of the 
Fund in 1917. The total paid for the year 1935 is just about the 
same as for the previous year. The total payable is affected by 
the salary schedule of tlhe Church whidh remains somewhat lower 
than in previous years, but this will reflect itself in the future 
scale of pensions. 

At 'present the average Age Allowance of the Fund is just 
short o [ f $1,000 a year compared to $622 ten years ago. As years 
go on, the average will 'gradually increase until eventually the 
normal Age Allowance will be about one-half of each Clergyman's 
average salary while in adtive ministry. 

The Trustees are still continuing their Resolutions providing 
for increased pensions beyond their original promises and for the 
immediate $1,000 checks to widows of clergymen dying in active 
service. So long as tlhe pension assessments aire paid throughout 
the Church with practical unanimity, as in the past, the Trustees 
hope to continue these extra benefits. 

As Do the investment status of the Fund I am glad to report 
that the market value exceeds cost by a reasonable figure, in- 
cluding the results of all actual .sales since t'he beginning o F the 
Fund. The Church may be assured, therefore, that the money 
placed in the hands of 'the Trustees is all intact and earning a fair 
rate of return for this benefit of the present acid future bene- 
ficiaries, despite the years of severe financial distress through 
which the country has been passing. 

To you and to those who have so ably assisted us in the ad- 
ministration of the affairs of the Fund, the Trustees are deeply

Resolution on Retirement of Dr. Milton 



The Secretary presented the report of the Trustees of 
the Diocese. (See Appendix "D") 

The Secretary then -presented the report of the Executive 
Council. (See Appendix "E") 

Rev. C. A. Ashby made the report of the Committee on 
the retirement of the Rev. W. H. Milton, D. D., as follows : 

RESOLUTION OF CONVENTION ON RETIREMENT 
OP DR. MILTON 

RESOLVED, That the annoumcfeid purpose of Dr. William H. 
Milton, to retire from active service as Rector of Sit. James' Parish, 
Wilmington, is received by this Convention with ireal regtfet. 

For twenty-seven years he has participated in the deliberations 
of the Annual Conventions of this Diocese. Always he has stood 
tor those things which would aid in the advancement of the real 
mission of the Church, the just and efficient management of both 
its temporal and ilts spiritual interests, and the spread of its 
influence through the Diocese, the State and the world. 

His service in all of the greater movements of the General 
Chuiriclh, and as a member of its National Council gave him a 
comprehensive knowledge of the affairs, the needs and ambitions 
of the Church as a whole. This knowledge has enabled him to 
aid our d'efliberations with wise and in"oraned counsel, and to 
help us in the solution of many problems. 

His leadership in his own parish, and in its piariticipation in 
support >of the Diocesan work has heem outstanding, and has. 
made him and his people one of the principal factors supporting 
that work. That he now feels it proper to netire from further 
active participation in the work is greatly regretted, but in leaving 
our ranks he will take with him the affectionate regard of f the 
members of 'this Convention and of those who have sinrvel with 
him in the pasit; our deep appreciation ol his generous and whole- 
hearted efforts in behalf of God's work in our midst, and our 
prayers for his continued success in the service of his Master in 
such fields as he may labor unto his life's end. 
Respectfully submitted ,

Report of Board of Man agers of Thompson Orphanage May 

In the absence of the Rev. Alfred S. Lawrence, the Secre- 
tary read a report of the work at the University of North 
Carolina, Chapel Hill. 

On motion of Mr. George B. Elliott, it was decided to 
rescind our former action and request the Woman's Aux- 
iliary of the Diocese to meet at the same time and place 
as the meeting of the Annual Convention. This was re- 
ferred to the Woman's Auxiliary for consideration at their 
annual meeting- to be held in January, 1937. 

A report of the Board of Managers of the Thompson 
Orphanage was read as follows: 

THE REPORT OF THE BOARD OF MANAGERS OF THE 

THOMPSON ORPHANAGE TO THE DIOCESAN 

CONVENTION— 1936. 

Tlhe Thompson Orphanage is located in tlhe City of Charlotte 
amid lis run under the auspices of the three dioceses in the State 
of North Carolina. 

The Board lof Control is called the Board of Managers and 
consists of the three North Carolina Bishops tand members elected 
by tftie three Diocesan Conventions. 

The Board of Managers meets regularly once a year aind (elects 
an Executive Board which meets each month. 

From the Executive Board sub-conunititees are elected as: the 
Finance Committee, the Committee on Admissions, the Committee 
on Placement's, the Properties Committee, the Fairm and Grounds 
Committee, the Social Committee and the Health Committee. 

The Executive Board, with its sub-committees, attend to the 
regular business ibif the Orphanage, working with (the Superin- 
tendent and Business Manaiger in carrying on the Business, Social, 
Moral, Spiritual and Hygienic work of the Institution. 

The staff of Workers consists of tihe Rev. W. H. Wheeler, 
Superintendent; Mr. Alexander S. Bynum, Assistant Superinten- 
dent and Business Manager; Miss Helen Good, Kindergarten teach- 
er; six Matrons and one trained nurse. 

During the year 1935, this staff cared for 119 children. 
sixty-fire igMS aind fifty-four boys^ 



FIFTY-THIED ANNUAL CONVENTION 43 



1936 Report of Board of Managers of Thompson Orphanage 

The total number of child days was 38,604, and 115,000 meals 

were served. 

During 1935, twelve children were placed out in work and 
in homes and their places at the Orphanage were filled by an 
equal number of mew children received from itih© (Hhree dioceses 
on" the state. 

The preslant number, May 1936, of children in the Orphanage 
is 113. Of these, 80 are from the Diocese of North Carolina, 22 
tram East Carolina and 11 from Western Nortih Carolina, 

All of these children with the exception of those of Kinder- 
,guii*em age and younger, attend the Public schools of Charlotte. 
They are thus given equal opportunities with |atlh.er children 
through broadening contacts and the best selhoOl facilities and 
vocational graining ofjfered by the City's school system. 

In the Class of 1935 which graduated from tflbe High School, 
there were 'flour Orphanage boys and four gMis. Ml eight are 
now in college or at work. The four Who 'are to graduate this 
yea,r (1936) have made plans for further courses of study. 

Seveirail of the older boys have helped the Superintendent in 
the conduct of the services in the Chapel on the Orphanage grounds. 
William Potts, Tom Myers and George PoWelll have been of great 
assistince to the ministers wbere they have lived since leaving 
the Institution. These three boys have made a spflendid record. 
They have obtained scholarships alt the Polytechnic Institute of 
Heading, Pa., the University of Noriflh Carolina and Boone College, 
Boone, N. C, respectively. 

On account of the extraordinary ability shown by William 
Potts in bis Work at the Hudson Hosiery Mills, he was selected 
by the management of these mills for special training in the 
Textile College of Reading, Pa., the Company giving him a four 
year course with mil expenses paid and the promise of a responsi- 
ble position upon his graduation. 

All the Orphanage children who are old enough attend the 
Church Schools "of St. Peter's and St, Martin's Parish, and regular 
Sunday services are held for them in the Orphanage Chapel. 

The girls and boys have a splendid vested choir and a well 
•organized branch of the Young People's Service League. They 
■are being tonight tlhe -privilege of being supporters of (flue Churdh and 
are given a emadl allowavnee each week that they may participate

Report of lto:iril of Maiingen of Thompson Orphanage May 

in 'tine (offerings at the Church Schools which they attend as well 
as at their own Chapel services. 

Bach year the Superintendent baptizes a number of the chil- 
dren a,nd presents a oliass for confirmation. 

The Orphanage owns 63 acres of ground fronting on Bast 
Fourth Stireet, about a mile from the business center of Charlotte. 

Twenty acres of this property is used as a fairm. There is a 
dairy with 16 cows. The boys, under the able direction of Mr. 
Bymum, man both the (farm and the dairy. The girls find ample 
opportunity iflotr their services in the steaim laundry, and some 
o£ the olldeir ones assist the nurse in the Infirmary Which, however, 
we are glad to say rarely has to be used to capacity. 

The health of the children is under the vigilant care of Dr. 
Myers Hunter, a member of the Executive Board who gives his 
services with consecrated devotion and with most sueoesslul results. 

Besides the Infirmary and Laundry there are eight large 
brick amid three frame buildings, as well as the picturesque Chapel. 

The Orphanage has a fine gymnasium which, however, is ?n 
need of larger equipment. It also has a library which calls for 
more boOkis. 

The depression hit the Orphanage a hard blow. It increased 
the demand upon it for its care of (more children left 'destitute 
and at the same time radically reduced the income from every 
source of support it had. 

It Host nearly $4,000.00 of reserve funds by bank failures. 
Eiach one of the three Dioceses had to reduce its appropriations. 
The income from the Endowment funds shrank and the gifts from 
the Duke Endowment fell off over two thousand dollars so tha.t 
this year (1936) the Orphanage can expect from (this latter source 
only $1,673.04. 

To help meet 'the needs of the children under their eaire, in 
the face of these drastic reductions in income, Rev. Mr. Wheeler, 
Mr. Bynum and all the others on the staff accepted reductions 
in their salaries. 

In 1935 the total operating cost of the Institution was $24,821.32 
The 1935 Thanksgiving Offering from the Diocese of North Caro- 
lina amounted to $5,481.00, or an average of 49 cents per com- 
municant. The Thanksgiving Offering from the Diocese of East 
Carolina was $2,603.35, or an average of 36.5 ceints per communicant. 
During the past two years the Orphanage has been operating 
on an unbalanced budget. As the budget for 1936 was not raised 



FIFTY-THIRD ANNUAL CONVENTION 45 



1936 Report oi' Board of Manage rs of Thompson Orphanage _ 

the Board of Managers passed a resolution authorizing the Execu- 
tive Board to operate the Institution for only six months on the 
budget which was adopted, and a revision of the budget alt the 
end of that time to balance it with anticipated income for the 
remainder of the year. 

The need is imperative for nearly $2,000.00 more than is now 
in sight. This money must comte from somewhere or else one of 
the Cottages will have to be closed and the Episcopal Church will 
be embarrassed in having to ash some other Orphanages to take 
care of about 15 or 20 of our children. 

Your Board of Managers feels that such a humiliating proce- 
dure wlill not be permitted if our Church people can be informed 
©i! the situation. 

A mlinimum of $1,600.00 more for 1936 will enable the Execu- 
tive Board, with close economy, to maintain the budget as it is 
for the remaining imonths of the year. 

The budget calls tor $24,470.00 and we have as an expectancy 
upon which we can reasonably count, only $22,803.00. 

The amount raised for the Orphanage in 1931 was $30,966.00. 
You can see by these figures how the income within the past 
five yeairs has dwindled. 

Material equipment is not of itself sufficient to resist the 
ravages of time, weather, and constant usage. The fine buildings 
and their accessories at. the Orphanage are no exception. Their 
need o p repair and replacement is imminent. 

For the meeting of all these imperative needs we have no 
Aladdin to appeal to. We have not even his lamp to rub. 

But we have 113' pairs of eager young hands which ruib to- 
gether as their owners pray to the Blessed Master Who loved 
little -hildren, to meet their wishes— the needs of the only mother 
which they have. 

Let all 'Churchmen become good genii and in the Name of 
the Malsfer help meet these needs. 

What response could we make whdich would please Him more? 
For las He said, "Inasmuch as ye have done it unto the least of 
ilhese my brethren, ye have done it unto me."

In the prayers said daily by the children is the petition ''Raise

Steps to maintain that "succession" — 

The Duke contribution 'not to supplant but to supplement. 

36.5 cents per communicant, per year. 

It costs to keep a cow 57 cents a day. We pay to keep a 
child 79 cents, only 22 cents more. 

A child, properly reared, lour greatest gift to the world. 

A co-worker with God to redeem His world. 

The Rev. W. H. Wheeler. Superintendent of the Thompson 
Orphanage, spoke on the work of the Orphanage in general 
and of the special needs at this time. The members of the 
Convention were so impressed wiith Mr. Wheeler's state- 
ment that the amount needed from East Carolina to prevent 
a possible deficit for the year was subscribed by individuals 
and organizations. 

The order of the day having been reached, the Rev. W. H. 
Milton. D. D., Chairman, and the Rev. John Benners Gibble, 
Secretary and Treasurer of the Bishop's Memorial Anni- 
versary Fund Committee, made their reports. 

The following resolution was adopted: 

RESOLUTION: That this Convention approves the -method 
adopted by the laslt Convention of the Diocese for cancelling the 
debt of $23,000, and further authorizes the soliciting of $5,000 for 
the coming yrar, ending at the next Convention., iftrom a selected 
list o'" subscribers within tlhe Diocese, and the continuainice of an 
annual Epi/phany offering to last until the whoUe debt is caintceillled. 

On motion of the Rev. B. F. Huske, D. D. the Committee 
was thanked for the fine work that it had done during the 
past year., 

The Bishop introduced the Rev. E. P. Miner, a clergyman 
of the Diocese of Southern Virginia, who was a visitor at

First : By the Rev. R. I. Johnson on the section dealing 
with the negro work : 

WHEREAS, the Bishop in his annual address this morning 
expressed tine -wish tlhat we might toe able to care for our own 
colored work in this Diocese in view of the steadily decreasing 
appropriations from the National Council for this work; and, 

WHEREAS, such seems possible provided a larger measure 
of self-support may be stimulated in the Diocelsan field, thus re- 
leasing needed funds for (missionary purposes; and 

WHEREAS, In addition to the above named objectives, great 
Impetus will be given to the spiritual develop<mient o!f the work; 

BE IT RESOLVED, that a committee tote appointed to study 
the field with authority to inspire and reorganize the same with 
these ends in view. 

The recommendation of the Committee was adopted and 
a Committee was appointed as follows: Rev. R. I. Johnson, 
Rev. Worth Wicker, Mr. John Home.

program, both as to stipends, continuation of fields, possible re- 
grouping of fields, with a view to tihe stimiulaitiom of increased

Third : By Rev. George S. Gresham : 

That this Convention, realizing the need of an a!lll time Secre- 
tary for tlhe Department of Religious Education, authorize the 
Executive Council to approve the appointment of such Secretary, 
and that the Executive Committee take steps to raise $1500 for 
salary and expenses through tlhe following agencies: Woman's

the Diocese. 

The report was adopted and then referred to the Execu- 
tive Council. 

The following telegram was received from the Annual 
Convention of the Diocese of North Carolina : 

"The Annual Convention of the Diocese of North Carolina 
sends greetings to the Convention of East Carolina and wishes 
you God speed in your work. 

ALFRED S. LAWRENCE." 

On motion, the Secretary was instructed to send a suit- 
able reply. 

The Rev. Charles E. Williams read the report of the 
Committee on the state of the Church, as follows : 

REPORT OF COMMI TTEE ON THE STATE OF THE CHURCH 

According to the statistics for the year 1935. our Diocese has 
been able not only to nold its own but to make progress. 

The parishes and missions report improvement in both tlheir 
financial and spiritual life. 

The Bishop's report shows an increase of twenty in confirma- 
tions. 

The Treasurer reports that for the ifirst time since 1929 all 
Obligations, including the full General Church Quota, were 'met 
promptly. 

At, the Convention last year, steps were taken to pay o<flf the 



FIFTY-THIRD ANNUAL CONVENTION 49 

1936 Resolutions on Bishop's Pence Plan 

Diocesan debt of $23,000.00 over a period of four yearns and to 
start an Endowment Fund for the support of the Episcopate. A 
Oom>mittee was appointed to solicit subscriptions from a selected 
list of individuals and preparation was made for the Epiphany 
offering. While the wo/rk of the Committee has not been com- 
pleted, there Ih&s been a generous response from many of our people. 
It seemis now that the full amount for the first year will be raised 
by early fall. 

This report would be incomplete witihout some mention of the 
Forward Movement. A large number of o>ur parishes and missions 
have used the literature and cooperated in other ways with the 
National Commission. The President of the Woman's Auxiliary 
has given much of her time to this work as a member of the National 
Commission and as Chairman of the Woman's Department of the 
Commission. 

We do not feel that the Diocese, as a whole, has made Cull use 
of this movement and would recommend tlhat the program pre- 
sented to the clergy at their recent Conference be carried out in 
every parish and mission. 

As the years of our financial difficulties pass and brighter 
days greet us, let us not forget our partnership and givte or share 
as Go>d gives; freely, liberally, constantly. 

The Rev. W. R. Noe was re-elected Editor and Business 
Manager of the Mission Herald. 

After report No. 1 by the Finance Department on the 
Treasurer's Report, the Rev. W. R. Noe was re-elected 
Treasurer of the Diocese. 

After discussion of the Pence Plan, the following reso- 
lutions, which were offered by Mr. John R. Tolar, were 
adopted : 

1. That it is the sense of this Convention that the parishes 
and missions be requested to use the Pence Pliam. 

2. That the receipts from the Pence Plan not already ear- 
marked for interest and other work of the Diocese, be designated, 
until the next Convention, for the salary and expenses of a 
special worker for the Department of Religious Education. 

A recess was taken until 8 :00 P. M.

SECOND DAY 

Thursday, May 14, 1936. 

At 7:30 A. M. Holy Communion was celebrated. 

At 10:00 A. M. the Convention re-assembled, the Bishop 
in the Chair. 

A report of the Committee on the formation of a Daymen's 
League was made by Mr. P. H. Kasey, as follows : 

FORMATION OF A DIOCESAN ORGANIZATION OF THE 

LAYMENS' LEAGUE OF THE EPISCOPAL CHURCH 

IN THE DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 

May 8th, 1936. 
Rt. Rev. Thomas C. Darst, Bishop, 
Diocese of East Carolina, 
Wilmington North Carolina. 

My dear Bishop: 

At the annual convention of the Diooese of East Carolina, held 

in St. Paul's Church, Beauifort, N. C. on May 16, 1935, Mr. P. H. 

Kasey, of St. Paul's, Greenville, moved: 

''That rthe Bishop be requested to appoint a Com- 
mittee to consider the advisability of establishing a branch 
of the Laymtetn's League in the Diocese of East Carolina." 
Under the authority of that resolution, you appointed as a 

Committee, Messrs. John Huske, FayetteviWe, N. C, George H. 

Roberts, New Bern, N. C, and the undersigned, W. A. Tomines, 

Wilmington, as Chairman. 

As a preliminary report, your Committee submiiits the following: 
Your Committee, by correspondence and interviews, has en- 
deavored to ascertain the sense of the laymen of the Diocese hereon, 



FIPTY-THIBjD annual CONVENTION 51 



1936 Report of Committee on Ijiymen'g League 



and have also been kindly advised of t)he scope and lObjedt of this 
■work through itlhe courtesy of the President and Executive Vice 
President and Secretary of the Laymen's League io« the Episcopal 
Church in the United States, as authorized by the Denver, Colorado, 
Genera! ConA'ention of 1931. 

Under this authority of the National Convention, a Joint Com- 
mittee was appointed, consisting of three Bishops, three Presbyters, 
and ten Daymen, to study the desirability of tihe formation of a 
National Organization of Daymen in the Church. 

This Committee duly approved and recommended this Organ i- 
zation, and in pursuance thereof, a large number of Parochial 
and Diocesan Organizations have been formed. 

For a Diocesan Organization, it is nfceessary that there shall 
be five or more Parish Deagues in a Diocese as the basis of a 
Diocesan League. 

Therefore, as the first essential under the resolution of May 16, 
1935, of the Beaufort Convention, it is necessary thalt five, at least, 
Parish Leagues be formed. This necessarily requires the forma- 
tion of Parish Leagues to be then followed by a Diocesan Organi- 
zation. 

Your committee therefore thinks it advisable and recommends 
that each Parish in our Diocese should consider and act upon the 
formation of a Parochial League for each Parish church. 

Such Leagues have been recently flormfed by our neighboring 
Dioceses of North Carolina and South Carolina, and we think it 
would be well that we should follow their example. 

Your Committee feels that the laymen of our Church have 
not fully met their duty and responsibility as laymen in the work 
of our beloved Church, and that we can well follow ithe example 
of the organization and work of the faithful women of our Church, 
and especially of East Carolina. 

The field for organized work and effort is unlimited, and 
should we laymen fulfill the full scope of our duty, we think we 
would no longer be concerned about 'the questions of balancing 
the budget or raising our quotas. 

The question now is shall the laymen of each Church so 
undertake to endeavor to follow the work of ouir Lord and Master 
in the Episcopal Church in the Diocese of East Carolina, and 
this can only be accomplished by untiring eflfort, by individual 
laymen, with the aid and guidance of their Rector? 

You have suggested to me that it would be well to endeavor 



52 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 



Resolutions May 



to form ait toast a skeleton Organization of mot less flhan five 
Parishes, and that representatives from these Parish Leagues, and 
any other interested laymen, rfball meet together in the early 
fall at Camp Leach to consider and discuss the suggested work 
and the form of a Diocesan Organization. 

Your Committee most earnestly approves of this suggestion, 
and recommends such action. 

Yours sincerely, 

JOHN HUSKE, 
GEORGE H. ROBERTS 
W. A. TOWNES, Chairman 

Tlie report was received and the recommendation adopted. 
Mr. John R. Tolar made Report No. 2 of the Finance 
Department, which was adopted as follows : 

RESOLVED: That the Treasurer of the Diocese be author- 
ized to pay the expenses to the Convention of the clergymen not 
yet connected with the Diocese, who are now .(located and serving 
therein, and of such clergymen as may have been prevented from 
being present at the opening of the Convention and also Candidates 
for Holy Orders and Postulants who are now serving in the Diocese. 

RESOLVED FURTHER: That the Treasurer be instructed 
to pay the sexton of St. Paul's Church $5.00 for services during 
the Convention. 

Mr. George C. Royall invited the Convention to meet in 
St. Stephen's, Goldsboro, in 1936 and, on motion, the invi- 
tation was accepted. 

The Committee on the Church Pension Fund reported 
back to the Convention the resolution of the Committee on 
Canons, with the recommendation that it be made the order 
of the day for the first day of the next Convention. 

The recommendation was adopted. 

The special committees were appointed by the Bishop. 

Mr. W. Easley Pace of Goldsboro, was' made a member 
of the Committee on the Bishop's Memorial Anniversary 
Fund. 

The Bishop was authorized to continue the Committee 



FIFTY-THIRD ANNUAL CONVENTION 



1936 Adjournment 



on the Bishop's Memorial Anniversary Fund and to reor- 
ganize it, if necessary. 

The Rev. B. F. Huske, D. D., offered the following reso- 
lution; which was adopted by a rising vote : 

RESOLVED: That the sincere thanks and deep appreciation 
of the fifty-third Convention of tlhe Diocese of East Carolina be 
expressed to tlhe Rector, Vestry, Choir and Congregation of St. 
Paul's Church, Edenton, N. C. and to the splendid people of this 
historic comlmnnity for their gracious entertainment of this Con- 
vention; and for the genuine hospitality and cordial kindness 
shown to all delegates and visitors during the sessions of this 
Convention and throughout their delightful visit to this section. 

After prayer, hymn and benediction, the 'Convention 
adjourned so that its members might attend the two-hun- 
dredth anniversary celebration of the present St. Paul's 
Church, Edenton?, where addresses were made by Mr. John 
Washington Graham and Mrs, C. P. Wales of St. Paul's 
Parish, Edenton. 

WALTER R. NOE, Secretary. 



APPENDIX "A" 



BISHOP'S ADDRESS 



BISHOP'S ANNUAL ADDRESS 



Brethren of the -Clergy and Laity 
of the Diocese of East Carolina — 

"Grace be unto you and peace from God our 
Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ." 

We meet together for our fifty-third Annual Con- 
vention in this historic Church which has stood in 
this community as a witness for Christ and His 
cause for two hundred fruitful years. 

We are indeed encompassed about "by a noble 
crowd of witnesses, including those hardy pioneers 
who found within these walls the inspiration and 
courage and faith to build a new nation upon the 
•eternal principles laid down by a God an Whom 
they believed. 

May some measure of their faith and courage 
and loyalty to noble ideals come into our hearts 
today as we go forward with Cbrist to win new 
frontiers for Him and His Church. 

Thankful to God for His continued protection 
and blessing, I am happy to report that our Diocese 
recovered much lost ground during the past year, 
and through the sacrificial generosity of many of 
our people,, was able to meet its missionary obli- 
gations to the General Church in full, and to close 
the year without a deficit. 

The Bishop's Twentieth Anniversary Fund 

So wisely conceived and intelligently planned, has 
met with a generous response in every place where 
it was adequately presented, and if this fine move- 
ment is not allowed to flag, I am confident that 
we will be freed from our "burden of debt in four 
years, thus releasing us for new and constructive 
seiTiee an places to© long neglected.

Bishop'* Annual AddreHS May 

The Negro Work 

The work in our Negro Churches and Missions 
while sadly crippled by the repeated cuts in our 
appropriation, has shown marvelous vigor and life 
during the past year, the Confirmations for that 
period representing ten per cent of our total Negro 
Communicant strength. 

I believe the time has come when we should at 
least seriously consider the possibility of taking 
over the support of our own Negro work, and if 
plans can be carried out for securing a larger meas- 
ure of self-support from our Negro Communicants, 
I am satisfied that East Carolina may be able to 
withdraw all requests for outside assistance in the 
not far distant future. 

This greatly desired result can never be attained, 
however, until we are able to make some very neces- 
sary adjustments in our 

Aided Parishes and Missions 

In my Annual Address to the Convention in Beau- 
fort last year, I said : ' ' We must increase the num- 
ber of self-supporting parishes and fields in order 
that our resources may be used in the extension of 
His Kingdom — for an advance movement into those 
fields of real need that have waited for us so long." 

I still stand by that statement, but the problem 
is far greater than the mere question of releasing 
diocesan funds for use in other places. It is a 
question of the spiritual health and vitality of the 
places which have been aided so long that their 
people have lost much of the joy and thrill of sacri- 
ficial giving. 

We have made appropriations year after year, 



FIFTY-THIRD ANNUAL CONVENTION 59 



]93S Bishop's Annual Address 



not chiefly to Mission stations, in our mill towns 
and rural neighborhoods, but to staid old parishes 
in many of, which there has been no growth during 
the past twenty-five years. 

We have done this in order to keep them alive, 
and I am afraid that, in some instances, we have 
harmed our patients far more than we have helped 
them. 

This is not the time nor place to examine the needs 
and resources of the various aided fields, but I must 
emphasize the fact that we are carrying a diocesan 
missionary budget far out of proportion to the 
size of our Diocese and the results obtalined in 
Baptisms and Confirmations. 

The whole question of diocesan appropriations to 
aided fields should engage the intelligent interest, 
not only of the members of the Executive Council, 
but of this larger and more representative gathering 
as well. 

I am not unmindful of the serious financial situ- 
ation in many of our aided fields, and I know that 
several of the old parishes receiving aid can never 
become self-supporting units, but there must be a 
regrouping of fields to the end that the Clergyman 
in charge may receive the greater part, if not all, 
of his salary from the points served by him. 

Woman's Work 

As usual, we are able to sound a heartening and 
encouraging note as we report on the organized 
activities of the women of the Diocese during the 
past year. Under the intelligent and consecrated 
leadership of their Diocesan and Parochial officers, 
the women of East Carolina have not only continued 



60 DIOCESE OF EAST CAKOLINA 



Bishop's Annual Address May 



to maintain their own high standards, but have, 
through their helpful and constructive programs, 
made a real contribution to other dioceses through- 
out the Church. It is a significant tribute to the 
leadership of our women that one of our former 
Diocesan presidents, Mrs. Henry J. MacMillan, is 
the President of the Woman's Auxiliary of the 
Province of Sewanee. and our present President, 
Mrs. Fred L. Outland, is Chairman of the National 
Committee on Women's work in the Forward Move- 
ment. 

Yoimgp People's Work 

The work for and among our young people is 
rich in possibilities, but is not developing as rapidly 
as it should for several reasons: one being the diffi- 
culty of securing wise and understanding men and 
women to serve as eousellors in our parish leagues 
and as teachers in our Church schools; and, another, 
our failure, beeause of lack of funds, to secure a 
full time Field Secretary for Religious Education 
and young people's work. If the proper person 
for this important post could be secured. I am con- 
fident that we would be able to make real progress 
in training our young people for intelligent leader- 
ship in the Church of tomorrow. 

Plans have been completed for our usuaf young 
people's conferences at Camp Leach this summer, 
and we ask the continued interest of our people in 
this most hopeful phase of our diocesan life. 

The Missionary Crisis 

In a recent letter from Bishop Cook, President 
Of the National Council, he thanked the Diocese of 



FIFTY-THIRD ANNUAL CONVENTION 61 



1936 Bishop's Annual Address 



East Carolina for our part in making up the serious 
deficit which threatened disaster to the Church's 
work at the beginning of the year, and went on 
to say: "The fact that the budget has been bal- 
anced is a credit to the Church, and another ex- 
perience which confirms my conviction that when 
we are frank and let the Church's needs be known, 
we can depend upon our people to respond." 

We agree, of course, with this general statement, 
and while the balancing of the budget was "a credit 
to the Church", there is something seriously wrong 
with the missionary spirit of the Church when our 
National Council is forced to send out such an alarm- 
ing message as came to us a few months ago. 

We must not only be frank and let the Church's 
needs be known, but must so revitalize the entire 
missionary program that it will cease to be looked 
upon as something related to dreary budgets and 
annual quotas, but as the spirit of the living, ad- 
venturous Christ at work in human society. We 
must present the needs of the Church, not simply in 
terms of paying the salaries of faithful workers in 
China or Japan or Alaska, but as an opportunity 
to share with Christ in His blessed work of re- 
demption. 

We must go forward with Christ, not only along 
roads of communion and fellowship, but as joyful, 
enthusiastic co-workers in His glorious plans for 
the making of a new world in which righteousness 
and peace shall be supreme. 

We cannot with-hold our resources — spiritual or 
material if we expect to play our part in His plans 
for the transformation of a broken and disillusioned 
world. 



62 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 



Bishop's Annual Address May 



Money is coined human energy and in giving that 
which represents the fruit of our hands, or our 
brains, we are in a real sense giving ourselves. In 
our small feeble way, we are really offering our^ 
selves for the sins of the world. We are taking a 
symbol of barter and exchange and making it a 
sacrament of loving service. 

When the offering of self and substance becomes 
sacramental in the Church, we need not worry about 
deficits or curtailments, for we will have at least 
reached that stage of spiritual development in which 
the oft repeated words of the noble Communion 
Office will become so real that we will gladly offer 
and present ourselves, our souls and bodies to be a 
"reasonable, holy and living sacrifice." 

The Call of the Hour 

Surely the call of the hour can be nothing less 
stirring or compelling than the eall of our Master 
Christ to go forward with Him to certain victory. 
The clouds of war are gathering- on every horizon. 
The voices of hate and fear and cruel poverty sound 
their discordant notes in every quarter of the world. 
Man's inhumanity to man still fills the world with 
bewildered souls who cry out for justice. Greed, 
sensuality and soul destroying vice still show their 
brazen faces in the streets where men and women 
and children wander aimlessly in their search for- 
th e peace and purity which is their heritage. 

The battles between purity and foulness, truth 
and falsehood, honor and dishonor, the powers of 
heaven and the powers of hell are being fought 
today in human souls, in the homes of our people.

the faintest spark of the Divine light within us, 
if we carry in our souls even the dimmest image 
of our Lord, we must go forward and join our 
Master Christ as He throws His life onee more 
into the very center of the world's unrest and agony. 
The future of the civilization that asur fathers 
died to establish, the peace of the world for which 
the Son of God became Incarnate, the mission of 
the Church for which He died, are all at stake 
today, and if we be Christ's men we must join 
forces with Him in that struggle which must not, end 
until the purpose of God dominates the world, and 
the mind of Jesus controls in loving power the 
hearts and minds of all men every where- 
in a recent address on "The Christian Task To- 
day", the Hon. Francis B. Sayre. Assistant Secre- 
tary of State closed his ringing message with these 
words : 

"If our civilization cannot he brought to under- 
stand more clearly and to believe more strongly 
in the fundamental teachings of Jesus Christ, and 
the principles upon which He staked His life, our 
-civilization cannot survive. I mean that men must 
•of their own consciousness eome to pereeive the 
utter folly of trying to build a civilization on ma- 
terialism and brute force, and come to realize, per- 
haps through suffering, that the -enduring values 
that humanity will always crave, grow out of un- 
derstanding and love and self sacrifice. There is 
only one way to make men realize that. 

We must go back to the livmg Christ, to the 
•audacious, thrilling, winsome figure that actually 
lived. 

Unless men learn to love JHim, they will not i oUow

Him. Neither will they come to understand how 
•to master life. 

That is the mission of Christianity to the present 
world, as I see it. As one catches the vision of all 
that hangs upon the outcome, the call of Christ be- 
comes the most exciting challenge in the world 
today." 

Above the noise and tumult, the voice of Christ 
is heard today — "I am the way, follow Me". 

In utter loyalty to Him, in absolute confidence 
that His way is the way to victory and to peace, 
may we, the Clergy and laity of this Diocese dedi- 
cate ourselves wholly and joyfully to His service.

EEPOBT OF THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY FOR 1935 



Eight Reverend Father in God, and 
Members of the Diocesan Convention: 

I bring you the report of. the East Carolina Branch of the 
"Woman's Auxiliary to the National Council for 1935 with 
a deep feeling of gratitude and praise — gratitude that I 
have been privileged to come in touch with such splendid 
•efforts, and praise for the devotion of all who have contri- 
Luted to the many accomplishments of work done in the 
Master's Service. Through their efforts I have been con- 
stantly conscious of an awakening in the hearts and minds 
of the women of the Diocese. 

The Annual Meeting of the Woman's Auxiliary was held 
=n Christ Church. Elizabeth City, in January; when we had 
as our guests the Rev. Daniel A. McGregor, Ph. D., Execu- 
tive Secretary of the Department of Religious Education 
of the National Council, and Miss Clara Neely, a retired 
Missionary from Japan. They Drought to us a broader 
knowledge and a deeper understanding of the meaning of 
Educational work in its relation to activities in the Mission 
Field, and an inspiration to carry our work to the most 
remote outpost. 

During Lent the women Homed with all Communions in 
the observance of the World Day of Prayer. And on Good 
Friday they shared in the Offering for tne Jerusalem and 
Ea^t Mission. Many Parish groups met each week for Bible

Report of Woman's Auxiliary May 

Study during Lent, thus bearing evidence of a deepening 
of the Spiritual Life of the Auxiliary. 

In the Spring the District meetings were interesting and 
well attended. May I recommend that the Diocesan Field 
Department make a study of District lines, as these were 
drawn before the days of good roads ; and I feel that some 
groups would be strengthened by coming into closer touch 
with a larger area. 

The Officers and Department Chairmen have been very 
active, and have done the real detail work of the Auxiliary: 
keeping before the women the needs of their departments 
and the information necessary to quicken their interest. 
Because of sickness and death in their immediate families, 
two of our Department Chairmen were forced to resign 
during the year. We crave them up reluctantly, but in their 
places are two new workers who have already added to the 
strength of the Board. The Convocational Presidents gave 
of their time and efforts, and strengthened the Parish Groups 
wherever needed. Their Meetings in the Fall were, by their 
information and inspiration, an evidence of their deep in- 
terest in the work. The Secretary and Treasurer have made 
of their work acts of loving service. The United Thank 
Offering shows an increase, but I hope for a real awakening 
to the beauties and privileges of this Offering as a result 
of a survey that is being made in our Province. 

A report of Auxiliary work would not be complete without 
some mention of the women of the Colored Convocation. 
It was my privilege to meet with them in Belhaven and 
their group should be an inspiration to all of us. They 
cover the work of all departments, and although limited 
in time and means, they report work done in all Five Fields 
of Service. 

In order to better understand the breadth of our activi- 
ties, they are summed up, financially, under the Five Fields 



FIFTY-THIRD ANNUAL CONVENTION 89

of Service, and I submit them for your consideration: 

Parish — $4,931.97 

Community , 2,052.27 

Diocese 3,358.77 

Nation 206.31 

World - 575.57 

Supply 1,115.11 

United Thank Offering 2,976.87 

Christian Social Service 2,226.06 

Total $17,442.93 

The Supply Work is the only one that has fallen below 
last year's totals, but this, I am sure, is due to a difference 
m reports. The $2,226.06 item under Christian Social Ser- 
vice, represents gifts of food and used clothing to needy 
individuals and institutions; and heretofore that has been 
mcluded in "Supply Work. I beg you not to think of this 
report in terms of dollars and cents, but consider the money 
as human energy, and as an expression of devotion to a 
cause, which in many cases meant real personal sacrifice. 

During the summer the Board of the Woman's Auxiliary 
met at Camp Leach to outline the Program for the year's 
work and study. The day spent together in that setting 
made ns all realize anew the beauty and the peace of Camp 
Leach ; and there was born in each of us the desire that our 
Camp may be used for Adult Conferences, as well as for the 
Young People's Camps. 

There were delegates and visitors from the Diocese at 
the Provincial Auxiliary Meeting in Lexington, and reports 
were brought back for our fall meetings, that quickened 
our interest in the larger fields, and brought us a new de- 
termination to attain greater Service under the leadership 
of our Bishop as the new President of the Province. 



90 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 



Report of Wo mini's Auxiliary May 



In October it was my privilege to represent the women 
of this Province at a Conference on the Forward Movement 
in Cincinnati. Since then my contacts with the women of 
the Diocese have proven to me that many have grasped the 
meaning and marvelous opportunities of this great Move- 
ment; and are regularly using the Manuals— "Forward Day 
by Day". The results are evident in the spiritual awaken- 
ing of the Parish Croups. God grant that these may prove 
to be the leaven aft work in the measure of meal, and 
that it may spread throughout 'the Diocese. Yet we need 
more leadership in this Movement, from the Olergy and 
Vestries— we need the regular and timely purchase of the 
manuals, so that they may be in our Parishes, ready for 
distribution and use. In many cases they must be ex- 
plained, or tremendous opportunities will be lost. If we 
are to walk the Disciples Way we must not falter until we 
have learned the last step— -that of Sharing ! 

Again on Armistiee Day the women united in the Quiet 
Day for Prayer, and this day which was observed through- 
out the Church in all parts of the world, I am convinced, 
is a real step toward International consciousness, which 
in turn must lead to better understanding and Peace on 
Earth. 

This, in a measure, is a brief report of the varied interests 
and activities of the women of the Diocese. We are an 
Auxiliary in a very real sense, active and interested, ready 
and waitin?z to be used in the building of the Kingdom of: 
God on earth . 

Respectfully submitted, 

ANNA ROSE OUTLAID, President.

.108 DIOCESE OF EAST CAROLINA 



Reports from Clergy May 



REV. ROBERT B. DRANE, D. D. 

For St. Andrew 's-by-the-Sea, Nag's Head, N. C. 

The usual storms of wind and rain having made difficult 
the approach to the church building, a public meeting of 
friends of the church was called in response to popular 
sentiment, at which it was unanimously voted that the 
church building of St. Andrew 's-by-the-Sea should be re- 
moved from the sound side to the ocean side. A committee 
was appointed, The Rev. Robert B. Drane and the Rev. 
Frederick B. Drane, with the privilege of adding to the 
number, for the purpose of removing the church building. 

This unorganized mission is served by the Biilshop's ap- 
pointment, by the Rev. Robert B. Drane, D. D., retired Priest 
of the Diocese. He was acceptably assisted occasionally 
by visiting clergymen, the Rev. Messrs. Frederick B. Drane 
and Francis H. Craighill. 

The infant baptism reported was in the Roanoke Colonists' 
Memorial Chapel, Roanoke Island, where Virginia Dare 
Day was observed by all religious ministers of the neighbor- 
hood, with a large congregation of people.
